I will guess this photo was taken in the 1870’s.  How old do you think she was when the photo was taken?   50? 
Thanks for stopping by.

From Iggy:
This appears to be Julia Velona Alvord (not Alvore) (13 Sep 1804 in Manlius, Onondaga, New York - 5 Mar 1889 in College Hill, Hamilton, Ohio). She married Elijah Mather Bissell (a descendent of Cotton Mather) in 1824.

She looks a bit younger than she is!


Ada C Bissell (8 May 1861 in Kentucky - 21 Jan 1884 in Cincinnati City, Hamilton, Ohio) Married John Robinson.

    I don't know who Lucas Holman(s) was.
