Cobert Genealogy: 1860's Libby Cobert ID'd Civil War Era Tintype Photo
On reverse: "Libby Cobert" is handwritten in old pencil. There is another word, "Malnard, Maynard, Mainard" handwritten under it in the same hand. Is this her married name, or the name of place where she lived? See our second photo. Photo type: 1860's Victorian CDV sized tintype Photo. Photographer: unmarked, unknown.
It is assumed her name may be Elizibeth or Elizabeth Cobert in census records, as "Libbie" is a nickname for such, although not for certain. A beautiful full body pose image, unusual, see close up scans of front, back and signature. She appears to be about 12-18 years old, born approx 1850. Found in Kingston, Ulster County, New York State.
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)
