FOUND: Tintype Photo Album from the Wolcott Family of New York

I have good news for researchers of the Wolcott family.
Your family's antique photograph album 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 was able to acquire an album from the
Wolcott / Van Horne /Van Buren Families from New York.
This 4 ˝” x 6” photo album has 30 photographs including 11 tintypes. Very unusual items like a couple of photos probably transferred from a glass photo to a print, a thumbnail CDV, a thumbnail tintype in a gold frame and Black woman dressed to the nines. The photographs and the album with it’s double latches are in exquisite shape.

The names in the album are:

Hannah Searles - thumbnail tintype in gold frame
Caroline Wolcott – CDV from Troy, N.Y
Tertius Wolcott – CDV from Troy, N.Y
Caroline Wolcott – CDV from Hudson, N.Y.
Mr. Wolcott – “R.D. Wolcott” – CDV from Troy, N.Y.
Hannah Wolcott Searles
Arthur Van Horne – CDV from Jackson, Michigan
Ephraim Van Horne & Family

Rev. David Van Horne – Print “Rev. Dr. D. Van Horne – Tiffin, Ohio”
Charles Nuley
Marvin Bigford
Jenny Grant – Fancy Black woman CDV from Ansterdam, N.Y.
Emily Van Buren Hudson
Enders Van Buren – CDV from Fultonville, N.Y.
Mother & Son
Christy Bowhart Friday – CDV from Ansterdam, N.Y.
George Koons
Maria Cody Koons
Jacob H. Enders – Autographed print
Cornelius Van Buren
Timothy Handy
Elizabeth Handy

“To Jim Van Buren with regards of namesake and cousin J.V.B.Parker”
John Bunn – ferrotype from NY
