These 3 photos were were found together in Buffalo New York, Erie County. We found extensive info on Luke Palmer online: He married Miss Mary E. Holbrook (seen here) from Connecticut, who was educated in Hartford and taught school in CT and also at a private school in Burlington, Iowa. She died October 19, 1888.
Children: Luke, Jr. and Sarah M. Palmer, who married John S. Cameron, a civil engineer, secretary of the railroad commission of Iowa, then assistant to general manager of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railway Company, later with the Union Pacific railroad, and finally an electric railway in Salt Lake city, Utah. Mrs. Sarah Cameron died February 24, 1881, leaving two sons, one studying at Yale, and a daughter in Burlington, Iowa.
A wonderful and historical Iowa Palmer family set. We do not know the connection between the two.

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)
