There is also a great detailed and interesting bio-sketch at Cabinet Card Gallery!

These cabinet cards were probably finished between1885 and 1907. The scalloped edges , heavy card stock and the script printing indicate a date closer to 1900.

To compare the original and the enhanced version of these cards go to LOST GALLERY - Looking For Lost Details
