Morgan County IL
If you can claim this picture, contact the county
coordinator. I have the email address particulars on these
photos. Not sure that these people may have been residents of
Morgan County IL after 1850.
One cousin wrote to another cousin about finding these
pictures, "Today I took apart a picture frame that Nancy
purchased at an antique store in Durango Co. last summer. She
purchased just for the frame it has old glass and is
very old. Inside I found in very good condition except for
some water Marks around a few edges these two photo's size 20"
x 16" and were protected by the print of an Elk, it, too, is
old and was printed in Philadelphia. They are more of a
painting rather than a photo and on the back of each are the
names . I don't know if they were from back East and came West
but was wondering if you might could do a check and maybe
locate a relative through Ancestry.com."
