Virginia Family Collection of 19th Century Images

to include: 6th plate tinted daguerreotype in full case identified on note as "Martha Melvina Bachers" born in Fincastle, Virginia; 6th plate ambrotype in half case of a matron's painted portrait; 6th plate tintype in full case of a Mrs. Staas born in Louisville, KY; 6th plate ambrotype in full case of Marie Nash of Louisville, KY; 6th plate tinted tintype in full case of an anonymous young girl only noted as being "4 1/2 years old,"; 9th plate ambrotype of a baby identified as "Josepha Nash; 9th plate ambrotype in half case of an anonymous young girl; paper print of two children, circa 1900, in 9th plate full case; four prints in oval metal frames (each 4.5 in.), three of which are clipped from picture post cards; framed baby photo of "Maurice D Langhorne Jr," circa 1880; three studio photographs of stylish women, perhaps two daughters and their mother in a triptych velvet-covered frame; plus two CDV albums containing approximately 60 portraits between them, 1860s-1870s, backmarks when present are primarily from the Virginia cities of Staunton and Lynchburg, though a one image displays a Boud & Miley backmark from Lexington and another has a Richmond backmark; Curiously, housed with this totally civilian grouping, is an unmarked CDV showing the well-known Missouri Confederate General Sterling Price of the Trans-Mississippi Department. On the surface the presence of this portrait is an oddity, however Price was born in Virginia and the album contains two later CDVs identified as members of the Price family. We can reasonably speculate that some civilians in the album were related to the Missouri general.
