If anyone has photographs taken at Maxwell Studios, please post them. I am particularly interested in photographs of people who homesteaded and lived along Whiskey Creek and Hogseye Creek, in Bundy Hollow, Covello, Dayton and along South Touchet. Many of them are my pioneer ancestors, but I am interested in history of the area as much as the people. If you are interested please post or contact me.
I attached Verlinder Calloway Paul's picture to get the thread started. Verlinder was the daughter of Andrew Calloway and Sarah Webb. Her migration was from WV to Indiana as an infant and from Indiana to Iowa as a young pioneer wife. In 1862 her last migration was from Mahaska County, Iowa on the Overland Trail to Fort Walla Walla. She settled on Whiskey Creek with several children and her husband, George W. Paul, who died during the spring of 1879, possibly prior to this photograph of his widow. George's death was listed in the 1880 Mortality Schedule and sometimes confused as his death year.
Verlinder was photographed by J.D. Maxwell in the mid to late 1870's. She passed away in June of 1884 and was buried next to her husband, George.
Please, everyone, post the pictures you have in your old albums. Even if you don't know the names you can post the picture to this site as a "mystery" person and someone out there may be able to identify it from their album. Even if you just say who you got the picture from it can be a clue. Who their families were or where they lived are also good clues.
Let's share, compare, etc..............
