This photo was found in Newark, New Castle County, Delaware. This is a beautiful early CDV photo of a much loved young boy in a handmade gingham suit, sitting in an early small wicker chair, high button shoes, in the Civil War era. Is he named after President Abraham Lincoln? He later became an attorney, lawyer in the Syracuse NY area, and traveled extensively as per his passport applications. We do not see evidence that he ever married.
This surname is also seen in earlier records as Diechert, a German surname of the Rhine Palitinate area of Germany, where they came to America and first settled in the Hudson Valley of New York. Lincoln Dygert is buried at the Phoenix Rural Cemetery in Phoenix, Oswego County, New York.

Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
