Are they your ancestors?
I'd love to know how they connect to my family.
Beers RADFORD (1784-1876) and Harriet HIGGINS had four children.
I am descended from his daughter (Hannah) Elizabeth Radford (1825-1915) who married Charles EVANS.
She had a sister (Harriet) Augusta Radford (1821-1897) who married Julius BRONSON.
They had cousins in Madison County New York. The pictures might be related to their cousin Louisa P Radford (1825-1872) who wrote the letters from Madison County NY I have blogged about, one might be her sister Sarah W (but if the date or age on the back refers to her, it doesn't fit Sarah W's dates).
First the RADFORD pictures:
|Back: "Bennet Radford B Radford age 85.9.23"|
|Back: "Kate Radford"|
|Back: "Sara Radford S. A. R. age 80.7.16"|
Maybe Bennet and Sara are husband and wife, both pictures were taken at same studio. The studio name was cut off of Kate Radford's picture.
Now, for the BRONSON pictures. Probably they have a connection to Julius BRONSON (1807-1895) and Augusta RADFORD (1821-1897), his wife.
|Back: "D E and John Bronson|
Hill Photographer 100 Bank St.,
Crayon portraits a specialty"
|Back: "George Bronson"|
|Back: "Helen Bronson"|
Some where there must be some descendant of the RADFORD and BRONSON family who would love to connect to this descendant Elizabeth Radford.
They are looking for connections, can you help?
