Photo Number 339

Uncle Bill Lister GR
This is Uncle Bill Lister.  His real name was more than likely William. He was born in 1859 in Iowa.   He married Fannie Hannant in 1882. They had four children.  Jason born in 1883 and died in Clay Iowa,   Agnes "Dolly" born in 1884, Edward or "Eddie" born in 1886 and died in 1960 and Florence born in 1889 who never married and died in 1940.
Bill and Fan Lister back of their cards GR
This is the back of the CdV, it is exactly the same as Fan’s. This photo was more than likely taken some time after 1882.  The photo is glued directly to the calling card and the card has gold edges with square corners.
Tomorrow we will meet Fans sister..Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

Here is an update Thanks! to Iggy! :
William Listers parents were Joseph born in 1813 England and Mary born in 1817 in England. 
Here is a list of the children : Amelia b 1840, Barker b 1842, Morris b 1844, Joseph b 1848, Sarah b1851, Elizabeth b 1854, William b 1854 (apparently they are twins), Mary b 1856, Hannah b 1859. 

Update: December 12, 2010 
This photo is now Full Circle Number 15 


  1. I have had little (to no) luck finding any direct Lister offspring. "Eddie" real name was Edward - he appears to have served in the US Army and be buried in Arlington National Cemetery. I hope someone tries further.

    Given the cards say Aunt and Uncle, perhaps the Nephew or Niece will become apparent - and their offspring will be "findable".

  2. Lovely example of a CdV. They always seem to capture something of the character of the sitter - or at least I assume they do. Who knows?
