His father: Artemas Glazier Homer was born on January 30, 1812, in Cortland County, New York, his father, Thomas Homer, was 41 and his mother, Lydia Homer, was 35. He married Rozannah Price Homer about 1842 in Cortland, New York. They had eight children in 16 years. He died on March 20, 1887, in Cortland County, New York at age 75 years. He is buried in Marathon, New York.
His mother: Rosanna or Rozannah Price Homer and her twin sister Hannah Price were born on January 23, 1817 in Milford, New York. Their father, Daniel Price, was 22 and their mother Sarah Price, was 21. She married Artemas Glazier Homer about 1842 in Cortland, New York. They had eight children in 16 years. She died on March 3, 1884 in Cortland, New York at the age of 67, and is buried in Marathon, New York.
Milo is also seen as Milo T. Homer, Thomas Milo Homer and Milo Thomas Homer in public records. He was listed as a dairy farmer in census records. We believe he may have been married 3 times, as we find him with Ann Homer, Flora E. Homer, (Flora Homer) and Lydia Ann Johnson Homer in census records, in that order. We do not know the status of his wife's deaths or divorce.
This photo was found fairly close to Cortland in Madison, Madison County NY. The photo is somewhat light in tone, but his face can still clearly be seen. Ordering scans will offer much close up detail. A beautiful old Homer family piece.

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)
