1860's Jennie Palmer Tintype, (Fred C. Hull) Providence, Rhode Island
Handwritten very faintly on reverse: "Hon. Fred Hull, Providence, R.I" is handwritten on the reverse top and "Jennie Palmer" is handwritten twice at the bottom in fancy old period pencil script. There is also crossed off handwriting which appears to read "___ wife." (first, fourth wife? please note this is only a guess) All of this is interestingly handwritten in very pale thin pencil script.
Photo type: Original Vintage Victorian Tintype Photograph in paper sleeve, circa 1850-60's, Civil War era. Photographer: A.E. Alden, 59, 61, 63, & 65 Arcade., Providence, Rhode Island, Providence and Bristol County. (known to be photographer Augustus Ephraim Alden, Augustus E. Alden or Augustus Alden)
Found in Public Genealogy Records:
Frederick Hull or Fred C. Hull was a deputy Sheriff in Rhode Island. Most sheriffs are elected and are addressed as "The Honorable" as in Hon. Fred C. Hull. Jennie is a baby about 6-8 months old. We do not know her connection to Fred Hull, do you?
This photo was found in Manchester, New Hampshire NH in Hillsborough County. A great genealogy mystery, and a wonderful piece. Any help or correction 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)
