This photograph is of a woman, although clearly marked "William Christmas." She is most likely a Christmas family member, and possibly William's wife Mary Jones Christmas, as her age corresponds perfectly to the age of this photo. A beautiful signed piece, found in Berkshire County, Massachusetts.

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)
