Circa 1880s photo of Mrs. Charles L. Batcheller
Posted by: Paul Peterson (ID *****2235) Date: October 13, 2009 at 15:30:24
  of 1348

I purchased the subject undated studio portrait of a young woman taken by Morse, 826 Market St., San Francisco, CA (the photographer was active at this street address 1881-95). The photo is identified on the back of the mount in period handwriting:

"Mrs Chas. L. Batcheller"

A likely candidate for the subject's husband is the Charles L. Batcheller listed in the 1870 Census data for Vallejo, Solano Co., CA; the 1880 Census data for San Antonio, Vernon & Florence Road Districts, Los Angeles Co., CA; the 1910 Census data for Los Angeles (resided at 1353 Burlington Avenue), Los Angeles Co., CA; and the 1920 Census data for Los Angeles (resided at 1212-1/2 West Ninth Street), Los Angeles Co., CA. I also found him listed in the 1888-90 Los Angeles city directories and the 1899 California State Roster.

Charles L. Batcheller, born about 1861 in CA, was the son of a tax collector, John W. Batcheller, born about 1830 in ME; and Jennie F. (or A.) (maiden name unknown), born about 1833 or 1840 in VT. Charles was employed as a farmer, lawyer, and notary public. He had at least two children--Helen, born about 1893 in CA; and Harry C., born about 1894 in CA.

According to the 1910 Census data, he was married twice; his second wife, Elizabeth (maiden name unknown), was born about 1848 in OH. The subject photo could be of her or an unidentified first wife.

Contact me if you wish to view and/or acquire this photo.
