This is a beautiful old 1884 CDV image of young Margaret, who appears about 18-35 years old, born about 1840-1865. It is a very close up and intimate portrait. It was found in Boston, Essex County, Massachusetts. She may also have New England ties. We could not find Margaret S. Orr or Margaret Orr in extensive genealogy searches, nor her as Margaret Shoemaker as a maiden name. Any help or correction is greatly appreciated, email Debra here.
Size: 2.5 by 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)
