Old Photographs

I am looking for folks who have old photographs taken from Charlotte County who may have used the photographer, Edward D. Macfee, Jr. This is my great-uncle. He was an itinerant photographer but lived for a time in Rolling Hill in Red House, VA. He also worked out of a studio in Chase City, VA and in Petersburg, VA. While working in Petersburg, most of his photographs were marked as taken by Columbia Studios. Edward Macfee had family in Charlotte and visited there frequently and photographed family and friends. He also produced penny postcards with poems and songs on them. I have a number of photographs he has taken and I suspect many of them are residents of Charlotte County but there are no names on the photos. I would love to have them identified and I would also like to see how prolific his business was. If you have a photograph from the area marked Macfee or Columbia Studios I would love to hear from you.
