Photo Number 1908

This is a Cabinet Card from Craig’s Collection.
Mrs Moll CRaigs
The photographer is R.W. Hubbell from Red Wing Minn
I found that he was an active photographer from 1886 to 1893.
I will guess this one is taken closer to 1886 because it looks like this gown might have a bustle.   The Cabinet Card also has a pink back that was seen from 1880 to 1890.

Thanks for stopping by.
Update from Iggy:
There is a chance this is Amanda Malvina Gurley Moll. (She was born in 1847 and married in 1865 and died in 1886.)

I believe her husband, Justus Bernard Moll worked for the railroad Chicago-Milwaukee-St. Paul-Pacific known as the Milwaukee Road that went through Red Wing.

Possibly this is John Colby Griggs 1837-1914
He married Lucy Hill and they had seven children.  She died in 1893.  He married Cora Azalea Bradish and they had three children; Samuel, Catherine, James and Mildred. 

Possibly the child in the photo is Mildred,,,she was born in 1895.  She married Glen B. Lukens and they had three children; Ellen, James and John.

M A Veeder Lake ForestMrs vetter Craigs back
Most likely Lake Forest, Ill.  This looks to be a photo from around 1880 to 1890.
Thanks for stopping by.
Update from Susanna Rosalie:
This is a possibility.
This could be MARTHA ANNA VEEDER *22. September 1873 in Fonda, Montgomery County, New York, +9. January 1951.

The NYGenWeb page collected info on the work and biography of Dr. Major Albert Veeder (1848-1915; a descendant of Simon Volkertse Veeder), married to Mary E. Wood. Their children:
Albert F. Veeder
Willard H. Veeder
Sarah E. Veeder
Martha A. Veeder

Reading through this page, I found a possible connection to Illinois: Martha Anna's sister Sarah worked as a teacher at Frances Skinner Acadamy west of Chicago. So maybe at a visit, the photo was taken. I think timewise it could fit.

At the page of family search, a record is given showing the application for a passport of Martha Anna Veeder in 1910. Looking at the original, one can see the 'Description Of Applicant' with her features of a 'round face with a small mouth and small nose, a square chin, high forehead'...At least not contrary to the portrait above!
