Mystery Girl of Mercer Co PA, jad08

Mystery Girl of Mercer Co PA, jad08

Sorry for poor quality. Original included in a flowery Victorian album owned by a descendant of Ephraim and Margaret (George) Wheeler, of Hempfield Twp., Mercer Co PA. Any help identifying names and approx. dates greatly appreciated. Families include J E and Ellen (Wheeler) Bash; Robert I and Louisa (Wheeler) Davison; Philip R and Margaret (Wheeler) Gamble; R. Henry and Elizabeth (Wheeler) Gamble; George and Lorena (Wheeler) Kitch; George and Sarah (Wheeler) Klingensmith; John F and Emma (Shook) Wheeler; possibly others. Marriages performed between 1870s and 1900, so could be either child of one of these, or might be one of the parents.

From the wicker chair and her clothing generally, this is from the mid to late 1890s, maybe a little into the next decade. If you know the photographer, you can look in "Directory of Pennsylvania Photographers, 1839-1900" by Linda A. Ries and Jay W. Ruby.
