Frank Crawford, married to my relative Anna E. (aka Anna Amelia) Willard/Williard. Photo in family album, looks to be taken around civil war time-frame from clothing? I don't know Frank's birthdate/deathdate yet? Frank & Anna had 2 children that I know of Carrie B. and Charles F. They lived mainly in Dixon, Illinois area.

Photo labeled "Grandma Ellis" - tintype. I'm assuming it might be the mother of my gggrandmother Catharine Ellis Rodig Willard. Her name was Mary P. Selover Ellis (married to Richard Ellis Nov. 6, 1827). They had 6 children: Isaac Newton, Richard S., my gggrandmother Catharine, Sylvia Jane, Mary Ann and William M. Ellis family extensive in New York - my branch went to Ohio area.

Photo in our family photo album containing mostly photos from civil war era. Haven't found another photo like this of Lincoln so don't know the date. Appears to be a drawing - not actual photo. Must have been time-frame when he was President as he has the beard and don't think he had a beard prior to becoming President. Anyone knowing estimate age of photo or information of photo I would welcome!
