Most likely Lake Forest, Ill.  This looks to be a photo from around 1880 to 1890.
Thanks for stopping by.
Update from Susanna Rosalie:
This is a possibility.
This could be MARTHA ANNA VEEDER *22. September 1873 in Fonda, Montgomery County, New York, +9. January 1951.

The NYGenWeb page collected info on the work and biography of Dr. Major Albert Veeder (1848-1915; a descendant of Simon Volkertse Veeder), married to Mary E. Wood. Their children:
Albert F. Veeder
Willard H. Veeder
Sarah E. Veeder
Martha A. Veeder

Reading through this page, I found a possible connection to Illinois: Martha Anna's sister Sarah worked as a teacher at Frances Skinner Acadamy west of Chicago. So maybe at a visit, the photo was taken. I think timewise it could fit.

At the page of family search, a record is given showing the application for a passport of Martha Anna Veeder in 1910. Looking at the original, one can see the 'Description Of Applicant' with her features of a 'round face with a small mouth and small nose, a square chin, high forehead'...At least not contrary to the portrait above!

  1. Oh, this one definitely needs to find its way home. What a cherubic expression!

  2. Maybe this is a trace:This could be MARTHA ANNA VEEDER *22. September 1873 in Fonda, Montgomery County, New York, +9. January 1951.
    I gathered the information from the website of the Wayne County NYGenWeb and a record at family search:

    There is an extensive Vader/Veeder family genealogy online by Elgin A. Vader. I am not sure, but I think he has passed away in 2011. Since I am not registered at ancestry, I could not look further for any contact possibility to his inheritor or other researchers. Maybe someone else could help. :)

    1. Good point about the passport, Susanna. I am on Ancestry, so I took a look. There were several passport applications for Martha. Apparently, like her sister, she was also a teacher, and spent an extended amount of time in Cape Town, South Africa. Unfortunately, none of the passport applications included a photograph.

      From what I could see on Ancestry, it doesn't look like she was married or had any children. In the 1940 census, she was living with her sister, and both were listed as single.

  3. I was thinking this is Mary A McDermott Veeder, the wife of Robert Veeder - they lived in Red Bluff, California.

    There was another photo from Red Bluff a little earlier. The husband is Find A Grave Memorial# 71210524 (she is "missing")
