Orphan Photo #31

Orphan 043-A

Orphan 043-B 

This is a cabinet card of Benjamin Franklin Way.  The back of the card provides a wealth of information, including his birth and death dates.  It even includes three generations of descendants!  I am in the process of locating family members to pass this photograph onto.  I’ll let you know if I am able to connect with any of them.

UPDATE – On October 5th, this cabinet card was reunited with family!




Wow! It's not often you get a photo with so much information.

I have some old photo mysteries of my own but if see an old photo in an antique store which has even a slight clue, I will buy it and try to return it to a family member. Thanks for taking on this project. it is so important to get these "orphans" back to their correct families.


I'm so pleased to stumble onto your blog. I have always been saddened when I see orphans in antique stores and junk shops.
