Craig Elizabeth Turner Owen

It is just a little smaller than a Cabinet Card. This photo is most likely from the 1880’s.  She is wearing a tight fitting jacket with a high white collar, lots of buttons and trims.  I will guess that she is 18 –20 years old.

Thanks for stopping by.

Update from Iggy:

Albert Marion Jones (6 Jun 1877 in Missouri - 19 Oct 1944 in Los Angeles) was the son of Mary Ann Ettinger/Weightman Jones.

It's a little confusing since Mary Ann apparently was widowed early (by 1900) and the census records of 1900, her last name is recorded as Ettiger and widowed. It would appear she was widowed twice?

She (Feb. 12, 1844 - Mar. 8, 1916) is Find A Grave Memorial# 91704256

ALbert's Uncle William (September 1871) was much younger than his mother - and maybe a half brother --

A family tree in Ancestry claims his parents are John Weightman (1817 – 1891) and Elizabeth Ann Siegrist (1826 – ?) Which would make his parents really oldsters then they had him.

Thanks for stopping by.
Update:
Iggy and I think this guy is Fred Barnum.

I found a Minnie Rose Parkhurst Barnum 1856 to 1948 married to a Fred Barnum 1855 to 1923 Johnson City NY. The photographer may have put Minnies name on the photo.
