Daguerreotype photograph of James Milton Bearse. James was born 10 September 1844 in Chemung, Illinois and died 02 November 1916 in Everett, Washington. A Civil War veteran, James married Marian Sophia Green Munn on 21 October 1866 in Crawford County, Wisconsin. James relocated to the state of Nebraska in 1867 and resided in various counties of that state until 1890, at which time he relocated to the state of Washington. James was a druggist in both Nebraska and Washington.
This photograph was made after 1864 - probably in the late 1860s.
