Mystery Photo Album   HELP!  

This is a old album of photographs probably from the period 1865-1890.  I obtained it from a cousin and it has probably passed through the our Boggs family and possibly the Kincaid family.

Unfortunately there are no identifications in the book other than a name on one photograph.

Photographs were taken at studios in Eaton, Ohio and Richmond, Indiana.

 

 On the pages that were loose, I able to see the back of the card and list where the photo had been taken. Those are listed besides those photos.

 

Photo #1     W. O. Miley Photographer, Eaton, Ohio
