Photo Number 1347

This is a Cabinet Card from Craig’s Collection.

George Hawley New York


George Hawley New York

The name that is almost visible is Geo Hawley.  The photo was taken by Smith and Coatsworth 1196 West Washington Street Syracuse NY

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)


  1. I can't help but wonder if it is the same George Hawley listed here: - I have contacted the Hawley Society to see what they think. Fingers crossed! :-)

  2. There are four George Hawley's in the tree David provided the link for - Sr., Jr., the III (a MD), and IV. Going by the photo date - I suspect David is onto something - and would guess this is "Jr."

    A different photo of what I think is the same man appears on Find A Grave.

  3. Trudy responded to me with this (She said he had trouble posting a response and ask me to post) -

    Very interesting to see this. I volunteer as the genealogist for The Hawley Society. This appears to be an older younger version of George Hawley Jr. His great-grandson is the vice-president of The Hawley Society, and the photo posted on Find A Grave comes from another cousin of this family, who has an archive of family pictures. I will contact both of these gentlemen today, and hopefully they can positively identify him. A genealogy of this family was published in 1979 by George Hawley IV. Thanks for the random act of genealogical kindness.

    1. Thanks David, I am happy to put the photo in the mail. My email can be found by clicking near the yellow flower on the left. Good work and thanks for helping out! :)

  4. Oh, how exciting to see this potential match unfolding right here! That must be a record for time from posting to time of connecting with family!

    The photograph itself sure seems very clear in its details. Good eye for that faint penciled-in name.
