Rescued Photo, JOHN, WILLARD, Cambridge City, IN

I rescued a very old photograph of a woman and her young son. The photo is Victorian-I'd guess taken between 1870-1900. They are both dressed very frilly, and the little boy has curls on top of his head and his hair cascades down the side of his face in ringlets. It was taken by Overbeck and Smith in Cambridge City, IN.

On the back it written, Bertha John Willard and Harry John.
I'm not sure if her maiden name is John and it's the boy's middle name, or if she had Harry and then married Willard. Perhaps she was widowed and remarried?

If this sounds like they could be part of your family, I would like to place this photo with family who will appreciate it. For details on how to obtain it, contact me at:
