This is a performer CDV carte de Visite photograph advertising a singing group or act called Hurtt's Juvenile Quartet. They were 4 children singers in the 1870-1880's who traveled and sang, with their father A.L. Hurtt as their manager. He is known to be Abel L. Hurtt, Abel Hurtt or Able Hurtt in census records.

Found in Public Records:
Abel L. Hurtt in the Indiana, Select Marriages Index, 1748-1993
Name: Abel L. Hurtt
Marriage Date: 13 Feb 1868
Marriage Place: White, Indiana
Spouse: Mary S. Meeker Lynch

Abel Zedder Hurtt "Zeddie", May Hurtt, Pearl Hurtt, and Frank L. Hurtt are pictured. Frank's name may be Francis or Franklin Hurtt in census records.

Their father, Abel Hurtt, was born in Ohio to Zadoc L. Hurtt (Zadoc Hurtt) and Elizabeth Mowbray, and grew up in Miami County Indiana. He married, had 3 daughters, divorced and remarried in 1868, having 4 children by his second wife, and these children were the quartette. His second wife Mary S. Meeker Lynch Hurtt suffered an illness in 1884 and died. 

It is assumed these CDV photos were sold at their concerts. In bold rubber stamp script on reverse is stamped their names: Hurtt's Family Quartet: Master Zeddie Hurtt (basso), Miss May Hurtt (Soprano), Little Pearl Hurtt (Alto), Master Frank Hurtt (Tenor) and Professor A.L. Hurtt, Manager.

Found in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, Adams County PA, a great old original and unusual piece!  The family lived in many places, mainly Detroit, Chicago and Indiana. This family photo is slightly trimmed on bottom edge, usually to fit into tight paper photo albums, as most were. Does not affect the beautiful image in any way.
