Mystery Family Photo

Mystery Family Photo

This photo was scanned from an 18x14 inch portrait that was displayed in the Harrold household in Columbiana County, OH. I do not know who the people are but they had to have been a close family relation. The only notation on the portrait was H. J. Springer Photographer Scottdale, PA. The portrait probably was produced sometime between 1885 and 1925 since the photographer's life was from 1864 to 1936. Any help recognizing and identifying these people would be appreciated.

Mystery Family Photo

I have another photo very similar to this one which contains some of my relatives. I believe your photo contains at least two Cairy women -- originally from Mercer County, Pennsylvania and Hubbard, Ohio. (Both in the metro-Youngstown area and not far from Columbiana, Ohio.) My ancestors include Hollingshead and Koch as well. Feel free to contact me at marywalby@yahoo.com for more information.
