Seven more examples HERE

Very little has been found about Anglin & Randall.

J. Robert Anglin worked as a "retoucher" for MM & WH Gardner according to city directories around 1890. Nothing so far on Randall.

Below is an interesting clip from the Atlanta Constitution July 19, 1896.

Robert M D Anderson




Photographer:
Robt. M. D. Anderson

Robert M. D. Anderson was born in 1860 in Maryland. His photography business was conducted mostly in Fayetteville, Tennessee. Although he was in the 1900, 1910 and 1920 US census, no other documents have been found; no death certificate, no city directory listings, not even another family tree included him or his wife.

1900
US census as photographer at High st, Fayetteville, TN
1910
US census as photographer at Mill st, Fayetteville, TN
1920
US census as photographer at 229 s Front st, Rockwood, TN

The couple had three children but apparently none of them survived infancy. Wife Amy M. Anderson gave a different age at each census.

This cabinet card must have been finished before he moved from Fayetteville to Rockwood.

James C. Adams



Photographer: J. C. Adams
108 Broadway, Fort Wayne, Ind.


Photographer: J. C. Adams
135 Broadway, Fort Wayne, Ind.

One could almost make a case that there were two men named J. C. Adams in the northern part of Indiana near Fort Wayne, around the turn of the nineteenth century. It doesn’t help that in FOUR census reports, he calls himself a farmer while historical accounts of him and his own death certificate describe him as a photographer. But, similarity in addresses, birthplaces of parents and the names of his wife and children, seem to make the farmer also the photographer.

It appears he started out as a farmer living next door to his father, William Adams, a Brick mason in Harrison Township, Blackford County, IN. In 1890 James Adams was learning photography as an artist with the Wm. Salzmann studio in Fort Wayne, IN, just 40 miles north of Blackford County. In 1892, his daughter was born in Bluffton, IN, 20 miles south of Fort Wayne. Then he moved another 20 miles south, back to Harrison Township, Blackford County in 1900.

By 1910 he is living next door in the same Blackford County in Washington Township, Hartford City, IN, where he maintained his photography studio. His farm land may well have been in the rural Harrison Township while he maintained residence in Hartford City in Washington Township.
