Photographer: Clay & Walker
Marlin, Texas
(also listed under Clay)

There appears to be more than twenty Walkers living in Marlin, Texas, around a time that would be possible for the photographer in question. Unfortunately, these are only Public Record Indexes so no other information is available on them. And there are seven city directory mentions of Walkers that are photographers about the right era, living in the southern Texas area but none of them in Marlin. No connections have been made so far to any photographer named Clay. (See Clay)

Sisters Clara and Geneva Clay were well known photographers on the east coast of the US. So far, there is not much evidence to tie them to Marlin, a small town just north of Houston, Texas.

No city directory listings or census enumerations have been found for a Photographer Clay in or around Marlin, Texas, which suggests at best, that the partnership of Clay and Walker might have been short.

Not the one you were looking for?
Here's the photographer's INDEX by name. Listed here are all the Cabinet Card photographers of the 19th century found in LOST GALLERY. This is a work in progress. For a look at the original postings go to LOST GALLERY.
