Harry E. Linton - Father of Nora Emily Linton

(Page Last Updated:  2006-08-25 )

Unknown People

Since the source photos for all of these images are a part of the Brown / Erbland family photo collection, it seems logical to assume that all of these people have at least a tenuous connection with the Erbland or Brown families; even if only as a friend or acquaintance. I admire people who rescue old photographs from flea markets and garage sales but that is not the source for these images. These images are all from Erbland/Brown 'family photos' that were never properly marked. Let this be a lesson to you. Run don't walk   to your own family photo collection and mark them all now! If you can help us identify any of these people, or if you simply want to offer an opinion about "who looks like who", please send us an email.  Incidentally, we believe that all of these images are of people who lived in Ohio or are of friends and acquaintances of people who lived in Ohio. There is another group of unknown pictures that we believe are associated with people who lived in Versailles, NY.  It is possible, however, that some pictures from the former category are mixed into the later category  and vice versa.  You may therefore want to also look at the Unknown images on the Versailles pages.

Unknown "A" - The back of this picture has a stamp that says "H. Golden, 158 W. 48th St., New York City."  It is possible that this might be the opera singer Magdalena Miller (nee Erbland), although this thought is total conjecture without any proof.

Unknown "B" - The back of source print says only "2872 E and G W. Matt. 50" in pencil.  Notice the shadow of the photographer. The flash holder is rectangular, indicating that it was the type that used 'flash powder'.  It is not 100% certain that this photo is from the Ohio portion of our family history but we suspect that it is given that it was mixed in with other pictures pertaining to Ohio.

Unknown "D" - The source drawing for this scan is mounted on cardboard and looks like a pencil drawing; a very well done one at that. "Belongs to 20 x 24" is all that is written on the back in pencil. The original is 10" x 14".
Unknown Man - The source image is a pencil drawing.

Unknown "I" - The cardboard frame that contains the source photo reads, "The Nyemeaz Studio, CHESTER PA." Is this photo associated with Unknown "H" and Unknown"J" given that they were taken at the same studio?  Ken Huber believes that this woman is Elizabeth I. Zettler of Canton, Ohio who he says married Russell J Adams Sr. He wrote, "I have a photo of her that appears to be shot by the same photographer, in the same studio setting. The dress and necklace are the same, but she appears to be wearing a coat or cape over the dress in my photo and she is in a different pose and smiling."

Unknown "K" - The outside of the cardboard picture frame reads, "Albert Jones, CINCINNATI O". The name written in the right margin also appears to include the surname "Jones".  It is probably the photographer's name rather than the subject's name.

Unknown "R" - There are no identification markings or notations of any kind on the source photo. The image on the right is just an enlargement of the source photo shown on the left.  Is it possible that the woman on the extreme right of this photo could be Anna Gerber, Charles Erbland's mother?

Unknown "S" - The source image is on postcard stock, as was common for this era. The postcard stock is marked "THE FAIR POSTAL STUDIO, CHICAGO", That does NOT mean, however, that this photo was taken in Chicago. There is also a very faint pencil marking on the reverse side that reads "1864". This marking is so faint that it does not look exactly like the identifications comments written on the other photos.  I can therefore not be confident if this is the year of this photo or if it might be a number put there for some other purpose.

Unknown "AE" - Reverse side of source photo reads, "WISSLER, 208 South Market St, Canton O." Ken Huber writes "I see a very close resemblance and believe very strongly that the photo you have of "Unknown AE" is of Mrs. Rosa (DeVille) Zettler, born about 1859, from Canton Ohio. I have three other photos of her from early1900's, but she appears perhaps ten years younger at least in your photo. I would estimate your photo at between 1875 and 1880."
