Sumner's occupation was a farmer. He and his wife are buried at the Pine Island Cemetery, Pine Island, Goodhue County, Minnesota. This beautiful full body pose portrait photo was found in Sheffield, Berkshire County, Massachusetts. It was possibly removed from a photo album back east, thus the inscription of "no relation" on reverse. A beautiful and rare 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)
