Photos by Lee B. Pearsall
Picture #1 is of Daniel A Pearsall
We have more than one Daniel A (Daniel A and Daniel Augustus)
and several Daniel's.
Picture #2 is of W.H. Pearsall-perhaps.
They had writing is very floral and
it could be W.N., N.N., N.H., M.N., or M.H. The writing is in ink. There
is a date of Dec 1868 written in pencil. Both the name and date are on the
back. This is the one that has the photographer's stamp on the back which
says "Hall, photographer, Main Street, Trumansburgh, NY".
Picture #3 is of Thomas Pearsall-perhaps.
My grandmother wrote on the front
"Thomas Pearsall old 1837-1935" in fountain pen ink. On the back is written
Thomas Pearsall and Thomas Searington. Those two names were written on two
lines in very light pencil. On the first line was their first names
"Thomas" "Thomas". On the second line were their last names
"Pearsall" "Searington". In effect, it was like this:
It also has the photographer's stamp which said: Y(?). S.
Woodbrindge,Photographer, Hempstead, Long Island. The (Y?) would have been
clear except that there is a stain over it.
