1870 Esther Smith Harvey Pinney CDV Photo, Stafford, Tolland County CT
On reverse: "Mrs. Ed C. Pinney" is handwritten in pencil, see below. Type: Original Vintage Victorian Carte de Visite CDV Photograph, circa 1870's. Photographer: F.E. North, Rockville, Tolland County, Connecticut. (Rockville photographer Frederick E. North or Frederick North)
This photograph was removed from a photo album found in the Northampton area of Massachusetts, Hampshire County. A very kind dealer / collector was finding and saving extensive family / genealogy material in the 1980-1990’s in that area. We have worked with her on hundreds of items. She bought at many auctions and flea markets, and carefully rewrote the family names as they were originally written on the decrepit old album sleeves. Very often the early antique photo albums do not stand the test of time.
Found in Public Genealogy Records:
Esther S. Pinney from census records:
Esther Pinney was married to E.C. Pinney, and her sons were Charles Biddle Pinney and Edwin H. Pinney. Her maiden name was Esther Smith Harvey, born 1838 in Connecticut, daughter of Moses B. Harvey (Moses Harvey) and Rachael Jennings (Rachel Jennings).
She married Edwin C. Pinney in 1861 during the Civil War, in Stafford, Tolland County, CT and died in 1921 in CT, most likely in Stafford.

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)
