Unknown Man, New Castle, PA

Unknown Man, New Castle, PA

This photo was in my grandmothers old photo album. She was Eliza Boot, born in Walsall England in 1887 and I have no idea who her father was. Family stories are that "he went off to America". This is the only photo my grandmother has which was taken in the US.

I cannot find any trace of a family member who went to America and have often wondered if in fact this might be the father of Eliza and possibly her sister Ellen who was born two years late in 1889.

The photo was taken by a photographer called Phipps in Newcastle PA.
