Grandma's Photo Album ~One of My Mystery Ladies!

Carte de Visite ~ Unknown woman, late 1890's.

She could be a GATES or HULL; a MILLER or BEEGHLY.

Many years ago my paternal Grandmother, Ada May GATES, gave my parents a very old photo album.
From what I can determine now, it was from sometime between 1860 and 1900. The album has a metal clasp to keep it closed and looks somewhat like a small bible.

There are 19 tinypes and 9 carte de visite. Not a single one has the name of the person on it!

Let's identify our photos for our descendants!
