This photo was most likely taken in about 1895.  She has quite large wings on those shoulders.
Thanks for stopping by.

This photo went Full Circle 154 on April 9 2017


  1. Not sure if this is her, but there are some similarities in the facial structure, especially the eyes. It is harder To tell when comparing a photo and a painting. Birth:1828 North Carolina, USA Death: Apr., 1904
    Wife of Benjamin James Martin Akin
    Burial: Masonic Cemetery, Trinidad, Las Animas County,Colorado, USA

    1. Following your search Sue, I left a public message for Mickey at Find a Grave, who posted the image of Anna Akin there. She is his G-G-Grandmother. Let's hope!

    2. Thanks Susanna Rosalie for leaving a message. Now we wait:)

    3. Thank you Susanna, for following up. I was on my way out the door when I posted, and didn't have time to do much. Hope we hear something. :-)

    4. I realy would like a copy of this. She was my great, great, grandmother. How do I do this?

    5. I sent you an email and await your response!

    6. Kenneth, I mailed the photo today April 3 2017

  2. I was just looking at the Find A Grave memorial Sue comments on, thinking this person sure looks the same. There are two "flowers" left by family members on the memorial - who might be able to say if this is her or not. Click on their names to get their email addresses.

    There are a half dozen or so other possibilities.

    Find A Grave Memorial# 18291585 is on the west coast and would be my second choice.
