Orphan Photo #82

Orphan 0082

There is no identifying information for the woman photographed in the CDV.  The photographer's imprint on the back reads:  “Q. P. Knight, Photographer, Batavia, New York.”

I located a Q P Knight, photographer, living in Batavia, Genesee, New York in the 1880 census. [1]  A Google search turned up a family tree that showed the same individual, with a full name of Quartus Parsons Knight. [2]  According to this source, Quartus died in 1894.
