Haven't blogged here in a while. My sister Jean died in the spring, leaving a bunch of family stuff to sort through. Gradually making some progress. There are some tintypes/daguerrotypes I'll put up here, with the information I have about them, the guesses I've made, and the questions I have.[Updated 11/1/16 with Marjorie's input.]
This seems to be William R. Harshaw (center) with two fellow classmates from Westminster college around 1880. (See below.)
I'm not sure who this couple is--nor am I sure of the time frame--perhaps 1860 and this is a daguerrotype? Could be Rev. John Rippey and Elizabeth Black Rippey,[Marjorie suggests possibly one of William's sisters and husband.]
Don't know who the two pictures above are--is there a family resemblance?[Marjorie suggests this is Michael Harshaw]
This is labeled as "Wm R. Harshaw"--may have been Helen Gold's writing.
I think this picture is likely of the Westminster College graduating class of abt 1880--note the overlap with the first picture.
If you've any ideas as to identity, please comment.
