1870's Elizabeth Foley "Lizzie" baby Photo, Cornwall, Ontario, Canada
On reverse: "Lizzie Foley" is handwritten in pencil. Photo type: CDV Carte de Visite Photograph, Victorian. Photographer: H.W. Weber, Pitt Street, Cornwall, Ontario. Canada. (known to be HW Weber or Henry William Weber 1843–1893, born in New York City, and died in Stormont County, Ontario, Canada)
This old CDV photograph was removed from a photo album found in the Northampton area of Massachusetts, Hampshire County. A very kind dealer/ collector was finding and saving extensive family and genealogy material in the 1980-1990’s in the New England area. We have worked with her on hundreds of items. She traveled and bought at many auctions and flea markets, carefully rewriting the family names as they were originally written on the decrepit album sleeves, Often the early antique photo albums do not stand the test of time. She is gone now and we salute her wonderful work and love for these old ancestors.
Do yo now this Lizzie or Elizabeth Foley family of the Cornwall area? This is a beautiful shot of her looking directly at the camera, sitting in an amazing antique wooden hand carved Victorian chair. She wears a large cross at her neck on a gold chain, hand knit long socks and seems like a much loved child, about 2 years of age with curly hair.
We would guess Elizabeth was born circa 1870-1880 and that she was from the immediate area, and that she also may have some American / New England ties, where photo was found. Any help or correction appreciated, email Debra here.

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)
