1860's Fannie Armitage Cross & James Cross Civil War CDV Photo
On reverse: "Fannie Armitage Cross & James Cross" is handwritten in pencil. Photo type: CDV Carte de Visite Photograph, Victorian. Photographer: Unmarked, Unknown.
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 and genealogy material in the 1980-1990’s in the New England area. We worked with her on hundreds of items. She traveled and bought at many auctions and flea markets, carefully rewriting the family names as they were originally written on the decrepit album sleeves, Often the early antique photo albums do not stand the test of time. She is gone now and we salute her wonderful work and love for these old ancestors.
We have not been able to locate them in census records. This was taken in the 1860's, Civil war era, and could be from any area of the country. She may be Frances Armitage or Frances Cross. Note: Frances is the female spelling and usually called Fanny, Franny, Frannie, or Fran. We feel they are both about 30-35 years of age, born about 1825-35. Any help or correction on this beautiful portrait of this handsomely dressed and fashionable couple is greatly appreciated, email Debra here.
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)
