Shelly Cardiel "rescued" this photo
|Shelly writes: I've "rescued" an old photograph of seven men which was taken at Kelly's Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1880's with the men appearing to be in their 20's - 40's at the time.The are all well dressed leading me to believe that it is a work related group or gentlemen's club photograph.
Six of the men in the photograph are identified as follows:
Geo A. POLLARD
I am assuming that the 7th was not identified as the photograph was his. Each of the names appears to be an individual signature made by each of them. Based on limited research I believe that the individuals in the photograph may be:
Geo POLLARD who was living with his wifes father and siblings in Cincinnati, OH during the 1880 census. Geo was age 33, born in OH, a Traveling Salesman whose parents were also born in OH. His wife Emma WILSON POLLARD was age 31, also born in OH, they were married on 6 June 1871 in Hamilton Co. and the couple had one child Rhoda POLLARD age 7 at the time of the census. They were living with Emma's father, C.A. WILSON age 61 born in VA, a sister Charlena age 28, and a brother Edward N. WILSON age 25, both siblings born in KY.
I also find that Edward E. SHIPEY married Daisy STODDARD on the 1st of October 1885 in Hamilton Co. OH.
William Fisher DODGE was the son of Israel Stone DODGE and Emily Waldo DANA and that he was born in Cincinnati, OH sometime in 1859. I'm hoping to locate someone from one of the families so that this wonderful old photograph can be returned to their care.
If you are a member of this family or know someone who might be, please contact me.The Dodge Family Association would also like to be contacted.
