Y. and a history of its graduates for fifty years 1844-1894, New York State University, Albany." It reads: William Nims taught district school four winter terms in Ft. Ann, N.Y.; 1 yr. in Andover, O.; associate Principal in Glens Falls Academy until falling health compelled abandonment of teaching; has been a photographer since 1846, a photographer and dairy farmer since 1873; m. 1844 H. I. Baker; 1861, H. A. Walling; one daughter by first marriage.

A wonderful historical Washington County NY Barkley family piece. A Civil War veteran, Robert Barkley and his wife Charlotte photos were taken presumably on the same day.
