This family photo is slightly trimmed on edges, usually to fit into tight paper photo albums, as most were. Does not affect his actual portrait image in any way.
This is a beautiful photo of a very handsome William F. Toombs in the late 1860's to early 1870's, at about 35 years old. He has an impressive beard. He appears to have stunning eyes, possibly blue, but light in color.
This surname has many different spellings in census records, such as: Toomes, Toome, Toumbs, Toumb, Tomb, Tombs, Toombs, and Toomb. By inscription, he is also related to the Morse family. It was found in Murphy, Josephine County, Oregon, and is a beautiful and early piece.

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)
