I see that you have submitted information for the Maxson family.
That was nice of you.
I believe that I have good news for you.
A remarkable antique photo from the Maxson family has been located.

I am Robert D. King and in my travels, I see family photos lost in antique stores and for sale on ebay. I think that is sad knowing that there are family tree researchers and descendants that would treasure those photos. So I have decided to try and do something about it by returning as many as I can to their rightful families.

So I buy photos with names and dates or places on them and list them on my webpage, so descendants of these lost souls can find them and bring them home. The thousands of photographs are mostly from the 1800's and include Tintypes, Daguerreotypes, Cabinet Cards, Carte-de-visites, Personal Picture Postcards, Photo Albums and Yearbooks.

Recently I located a photo of a brother and two sisters on a photo postcard.

The name on the photo is:

Grandma Chipman (Chapin), Aunt Barbara Huntington and Uncle Chris Maxson,

Research shows that Ephraim Maxson b.1801 Virginia to d. 1858 Iowa
and Mary Polly Smith b.22 Dec 1804 in Virginia
had children David b.1830 Ohio, Theresa b.1840 Ohio,
Christian Smith b.18 Oct 1842 Indiana, Barbara E. b.5 Oct 1846 Michigan
Martin b.1847 Missouri and Prudence who married Seymour Chapin.

If you or anyone you know, might want
to purchase this heirloom
and bring it back into the family,
please contact me at:

Please feel free to check out your other family names:
