This photo, so very special to me, was sent to me by a granddaughter of Emma's sister, Sarah Isabelle. This cousin was so very generous in sharing this photo as the Smalley House burned down to the ground in 1904 and everything was lost. Lois believes that the age of Emma in the photo is about 13 years old taken approximately 1869, 1870. You will note the photographer was C.B. Tinker of Pittston, Pennsylvania. I looked him up and sure enough, he is listed in the 1870 census of Pittston and his name is Charles, age 34 born in New York, occupation Photographer. His wife Frances is 27 and they had two sons; Harrison age 5 and Asher age 3.
Today, as I look at this photo, I am reminded of how much I appreciate fellow researchers and cousins who have been so willing to share their information.
