Description

Circa 1865. Tintype photograph of Collin W. Minor - son of Lawrence Lewis Minor & Maria Chambers Hays.

Original, no photographer listed.

Photograph is in a Union Case made by A. P. Critchlow & Co., Maunfacturers of Daguerreotype Cases, Hinge patented 14 October 1856.

Identity researched by Linda Cunningham Fluharty who discovered the name "Calvin Miner" on a piece of paper encased with the photograph and proceeded to show that Collin Minor's Civil War service record at the National Archives interchanges his given name as both Collin and Calvin.

In 2005, Linda Cunningham Fluharty sold the original photograph to Candice Lynn Buchanan who shared the photograph with the Greene Connections: Greene County, Pennsylvania Archives Project in 2005.
