Aunt Matti

Aunt Matti

This tin type marked Aunt Matti, is from the album belonging to Sarah Maxson Purviance of Steubenville, Ohio. It was found in the state of Washington where some her her descendants had lived. Many of the pictures in this album are from the state of Illinois, so it is a guess as to where she was really from.



The hairstyle is about 1869-70.
