Found: Photo of "Aunt Mag Patchin"

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I found a photo in an antique store today. It is a studio photo of a mature lady taken by Cookingham Studio, Jackson, Michigan. The studio mark is on the bottom front side, and on the back is the handwritten name: "Aunt Mag Patchin"

Ms. Patchin appears to be in 45-50 years old. She has light brown hair and what appear to be hazel eyes. She also has a strong chin and high cheekbones. She is wearing a black, high collared button front dress with pearlized buttons and quite alot of hand applique. She is also wearing a nice broche at her neck.

From her clothing and by dating other photos that I found this one with (some have Civil War revenue stamps), I estimate that the photo was taken c. 1860-1870.

Please let me know if you would like to have this photo. I paid $4.00 and do not wish to profit, but would like to have my $4.00 back + SASE. (I buy photos with names on them every time I find them; 30 or so at a time, and this gets expensive if I don't get reimbursed.)

I can be reached at:

I hope that someone has this dignified looking lady in their tree.

Suzy Underwood
