Frances Marion McKinley
(16 Jan 1861 - 8 Mar 1948)
Only one record establishes F. M. McKinley as a photographer in Gatesville, TX, the 1900 US Census. After that, all documents show him as a farmer in Lampasas, TX. The 1880 US Census says, at 19, he is a shepherd.
Two news items (below) show McKinley apparently worked in Osage and Waco, TX also. And group portrait cabinet card at the right shows he also worked in Moody,TX.
The cabinet card at the left was probably done between about 1890 and 1900.
