Handwritten on reverse: "Roxanna Cropsey, Friend of Lairna Jemima" and underneath this the name "Allison Harmon" is handwritten in old black period dip pen ink. (Note: we easily found the Harmon family in Oswego census records) See scan, or could it be Lairna Allison and Jemima Harman? A mystery!

Photo type: CDV or Carte de Visite Photograph. Date: 1860s Civil War era. Roxanna looks to be in her thirties, born roughly around 1830? Found in Rochester NY, Monroe County. It is possible her friends name is one long name as in Lairna Jemima Allison Harman or Lairna Jemima Allison Harmon. These friends could have attended a young womens seminary school with Roxy or Roxanna.

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.
