1870's Susan Druck Wambaugh CDV Photo, York County, York, Pennsylvania


#876

On reverse: "Susan Druck" is handwritten in original old period dip pen ink. Photo Type: CDV Carte de Visite Photograph, circa 1870's. Photographer: J.E. Jeffres. Photographer
Address: Jordans Building, Center Square, York, York County, Pennsylvania. Photographer: J.E. Jeffres. Photographer Address: Jordan's Building, Center Square, York, York County, Pennsylvania. (known to be photographer James E. Jeffres born 1835 in Virginia. In 1880, age 45, he lives at West Market Street in York, Pennsylvania, with his surname spelling as Jeffries in census. His wife is Katie Jeffries, age 32, born 1848 in either MD or PA, her parents born in France. Their 5 children are Mary C. Jeffries, Harry J. Jeffries, Eddie W. Jeffries, Katie M. Jeffries, and Bessie Jeffries. His 2 sisters also live with them, Julia A. Jeffries born 1848, and Lizzie B. Jeffries, born 1832, assumed as Elizabeth B. Jeffries. In 1870, James works as a photographer in Baltimore, Maryland. His son Harry Jeffres, also later a photographer, is born in Baltimore in 1869. We then find him working in York, PA from 1870-1886. His studio is J.E. Jeffries New Photograph Gallery, No. 6 West Market St., York, PA. We believe he sells this business in York about 1886, as we find W.H. Swords, Photographer, named as a "successor to J.E. Jeffres" in York PA files. (known to be photographer William H. Swords 1855-1930, buried at Prospect Hill Cemetery in York, York County, Pennsylvania) We find J.E. Jeffres at 12 & 14 E. State St. in Trenton, Mercer County, New Jersey in 1882-1883, was this a son working under his father's name? Interestingly, we also find a W. Jeffres working as a photographer in Trenton as early as 1866, was this James father? In 1885, James E. Jeffres is found in the Norfolk, Virginia City Directory working as a photographer. We later find his 2 sons Harry J. Jeffries, born 1869 and Edwin Jeffres, or Edwin W. Jeffres, born 1871, in Baltimore, both photographers. Edwin Jeffres worked at 534 N. Carey St. in Baltimore, Maryland in the 1890 City Directory. This surname Jeffres is seems to switch between Jeffries, Jeffers, Jeffres or Jeffress, even within the family. We do find a James E. Jeffers buried in 1906 in the Mount Olivet Cemetery in Baltimore, Baltimore City, Maryland, but cannot verify the grave as his. Any help or correction appreciated, email Debra here)
