Ellen Ford and son
Hall was the photographer at 170 E. Madison St. in Chicago
Ellen seems to be holding something in her hands…something all rolled up. Her gown appears to have dropped shoulders, typical of the fashions in the late 1860’s. I can also see her ears which usually indicates the later part of the 1860’s or early 1870’s. Her hair is also parted in an unusual way, I haven’t see that “do” before.
Thanks for stopping by. Do come again.
Possibility from Iggy:
Ellen Ford nee Hooker (abt 1837 in England), the wife of Cornelius Ford and son Clayton E. Ford (abt 1861 in Wisconsin)
Both Cornelious and Clayton were carpenters. Clayton married Elizabeth C. Pilgrim on 23 Dec 1885 in Cook County, Illinois.
In the 1920 US Census, he is shown living in Chicago with Wife Elizabeth, and children, Whitfield Ford age 28, and Gertrude Ford age 25.
