This is a wonderful Wisdom family photo, Amelia looks to be about 14 years old and this is an unusual full body portrait. There is a beautiful hand painted Victorian backdrop behind her. The photo was found in Hampshire County, Massachusetts, where she may also have New England family ties.
We have been unable to find Amelia in Nebraska census records, was she passing through? or was a traveling photographer passing through? This was a common practice in the Midwest. she may be from South Dakota or Iowa.
Amelia appears about 15-18 years old, born roughly about 1875-1885 in this photo. Please email Debra for any corrections or info 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)
