1860's Sallie Barry Howe CDV Photo, wife Albion Howe, Owego, New York


#581:

On reverse: "S. Howe, Wife of Albion Howe" is handwritten in pencil. Photo Type: Original Vintage Victorian CDV Carte de Visite Photograph, circa 1860’s, Civil War era. Photographer: J. Berry, Owego, Tioga County, New York (known to be Owego photographer Joseph Berry)

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 album sleeves. Very often the early antique photo albums did not stand the test of time.

Sally Howe, Sallie Howe or Sarah Barry McKnight Howe was born in 1842 and raised in Buffalo, Erie County, New York. Sallie or Sally is a known nickname for Sarah. Buffalo is about 170 miles from Owego, where this photo was taken. Her age corresponds perfectly with the timing of this CDV photo. She married Captain Albion Howe of the NY 4th Artillery. Interesting that the photographer's name is Joseph Berry, is this a relative? an alternative spelling of Barry? We do not know.

Sallie's father, Civil War Union Brigadier General William Farquhar Barry was stationed near and buried in Buffalo, New York. Her mother, Kate or Katharine W. McKnight or Kate Mcknight Barry was born in Pittsfield, Massachusetts in 1823. Sallie was born July 26, 1842 in Buffalo, Erie County, New York. Source: U.S. Passport Applications, 1795-1925, 15 November 1899, signed by her as Sallie Barry Howe.
