Eliza Cation Duncan

Eliza Cation Duncan origAmidst the pile of Dad’s business cards – his own and ones he collected from other folks – there was this little tintype.  It’s my great great grandmother, Eliza Cation Duncan, 1817-1890.

The photo itself is 2″ x 1 3/4″ – taped to the embossed paper frame.

I’m guessing it date from about 1875.  I have another photo of her that I’ll add below.  It’s on paper and she looks older in it.

Tintype. Eliza Cation Duncan.

This might have been taken in the 1880s.  The hat is the same one that she wears in an 1882 family portrait.
