Photo Details

I’ve “rescued” an old photograph of Lottie STEVENS which was taken at the F. E. Walker Studio in Fishkill on Hudson, NY. Lottie is identified as the daughter of Levi STEVENS and appears to be about 10 years old at the time the photograph was taken sometime in the 1880’s. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following match in census records:

1880 census of Fishkill, NY:

Levi STEPHENS, age 37, a Jeweler born NY, parents born Canada
Maggie STEPHENS, wife, age 31, Keeping House, born NY, parents born Scotland/NY
Lotta STEPHENS, dau, age 3, born NY
Agnes TAYLOR, cousin, age 24, at Home, born MI, parents born NY
+ 1 Domestic Servant

1892 census of Fishkill, NY:

Levi Stevens, age 47, a Jeweler, born USA
Margret STEVENS, age 43, born USA
Lotta STEVENS, age 15, born USA
Harry STEVENS, age 10, born USA

I am hoping to locate someone from this STEVENS Family so that the photograph can be returned to the care of her family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me.
