We need a Hudson Valley of NY Vanderlyn or Van Derlyn researcher to work on this one. We assume this is a Dutch family with early European / Holland roots. We are unsure of her age, but believe was born anywhere from 1850-65. Do you know Mame?
A beautiful old clearly signed portrait. Was Cousin Mame visiting Po'keepsie and had her photo taken? We have been unable to locate her in local Po' genealogy records. 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)
