This old lost family photo has Ada's own beautifully handwritten inscription on reverse, see scan, unusual and a wonderful family find. It was found in Brimfield, Hampden County, Massachusetts. Please see Ernest Blanchard photo, and another photo found with it here #504, we believe this may be her son Ernest Whitaker Blanchard, born in 1874 and her mother, Jane Whitaker, wife of Albert.
They were found in the same area, but not together, which is not as unusual as it may seem, especially if an old photo album was disassembled and sold at local flea markets or estate sales. A wonderful Blanchard family set.
Size: 2.5 x 4 inches.
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)
