Photographer: J. Gurney & Son, 707 Broadway, New York City, Manhattan, New York County. (Jeremiah Gurney (1812-1895) was first an American daguerreotype photographer operating in New York City and later became a leading portrait photographer. He took many famous photos of prominent 19th c. citizens relating to the American Civil War, including performers, actors, politicians, clergy and 19th century cultural icons. He is best known for having taken the only known photograph of Abraham Lincoln in death. This photo is slightly trimmed on edges to fit in photo albums.

This is a beautifully signed old Civil War portrait of a Doctor of Divinity D.D., Minister, Preacher, Reverend or Deacon. Maxson is an alternative spelling of this surname. It was found in Kingston, NY Ulster County. It is assumed this was a prominent New York City member of the Clergy.

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.
