A beautiful Victorian image if Florence, who wears plaited hair, Victorian gold jewelry, a lace collar and fine clothing. As we see above, Florence married Joseph B. Young in 1882, born 1855 in Ireland. Yet, we see a 1905 census record where she is living alone with the children, listed as the head of the house and "widowed". Yet, in the 1910 census, she is again living with Joseph B. Young. Any help or correction appreciated, email Debra here. This beautiful old piece was found in the area of Livingston, Ontario and Monroe County NY.
