James M. Duvall (01 Jul 1861 - 24 Apr 1935)

The title of “Photographer” is applied only once in the records of James M Duvall. In the 1900 US Census when he was 39, the occupation is reported as photographer. All other records say he was a farmer. Unfortunately he lived in a rather rural location so there are no city directories to check, only the US Census. Homer, Illinois, is a very small town, even today.

Of course he might have done portrait photography as a side line during many of those farming years but the records say he was a farmer.

The cabinet cards just to the left were probably done around 1900.
