It looks like there are many others in the same boat I am in..I own about 20 photos and about 20-30 Tin type photos that my g-grandfather Rufus Willis took back in the 1800's and eary 1900's..He and his father Abner Willis had Studio's in Owensboro Ky,Madiosnville Ky,Posey County IL, and In In. The Studio was called "Willis & Sons" I have two with a Sue Cox on the back, they are in good shape and they are 8x10's..I also have a man by the name of Ray Cobb..He is in a suit and tie..8x10..great shape..and I have a post card with a party of Ladies and gentlemen which reads W.F Nisbet, a photgrapher took it in Evansville In. I also have 11x14 photos of people I don't know..and some are in great shape to be as old as they are..
