The Smith name is one of great importance in the small but beautiful 18-19th century historical town of Cooperstown, NY. There was a well known Smith family photographer at this time period named Washington G. Smith, presumably related to Franklin. The wonderful collection of 60,000 Smith & Telfer Photographs are at the Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown. This is a great Civil War era original Cooperstown photo.

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)
