Orphan Photo #38

Orphan 0038

Who is this lovely man?  The back reads:

Yours Truly
Carlton E Taylor

Orphan 0038-B

Is this a photo of Carlton?  Perhaps.

This photograph is cut to an oval and mounted on a 1/16” thick board measuring 6-3/4” x 9-3/4”.  The imprint reads, “ C. E. Smith Rock Island, Ill.”

There is a Carleton G Taylor living in Rock Island in the 1900 census.  According to the census, the parents are Eleazer G T and Victoria A C Taylor, and Carleton was born in September 1874.  If this is Carlton, it’s likely that this photo was taken several years later, as he would have been about 26 in 1900, and this gentleman is certainly not 26 in this photo.

Care to weigh in?  Is he your ancestor?

Interesting. I wonder to whom the "Yours Truly" was addressed?
