PHOTOS of UNKNOWN CORNELLs

The following are old photos of Cornells who have not been identified, and your help is requested. These are now in my possession, or I know where they are. I would love to return them to family members if they can be found. Please e-mail me if you have any ideas.

Thanks...... Tom Cornell


The following is described as a "cabinet photo" and was taken by Galloway in Brooklyn, N.Y.

The subject is "Mr. JOHN CORNELL" who is identified on the back. Below his name in different handwriting and ink is "Uncle of G.S.R."

The subject of this photo is identified in pencil on the back as "MARY CARNELL" or perhaps Cornell.

There are no other clues, and it's unknown if this was her maiden or married name. This photo looks to be of the period of about 1900-1915.

Mary Cornell


Two Cornell ladies and possibly sisters, "Etta and Jennie Cornell." Their names are on the backs of the photos and in the same handwriting. These were part of a group of six photos purchased at the same time including two of identified Cornwell men who lived in the Rochester, NY area; however, that is no indication these were from there. They are CDVs or "cartes-de-visite." Can anyone give us a clue from their hairstyles and dress what period these are from?

Etta Cornell Jennie Cornell


This is part of the same group of six CDV photos and is of a "John Cornell." The photographer on the back was M.H. Monroe of Rochester, NY who was active there during the Civil War period, 1855-65.
