This English Milner family photo was found in Northampton, Massachusetts, in Hampshire County USA. It is assumed she has American Milner family ties, genealogy and roots. It appears Sarah has a very shaggy dog sleeping on her lap, although he is not in focus, as he must have moved when shutter was triggered. He must have meant much to her! We feel she would have been born roughly in the 1820-1840 range. This is an unusual image for an early CDV photograph, and a beautiful old Milner 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)
