Joseph E Walton

Photographer: Walton
Vevay, Ind

Joseph E Walton
(2 Sep 1847 - 8 Nov 1916)

It appears that J. E. Walton spent his entire life in Vevay, Indiana. The earliest record of his photography is the 1880 US census when he was 32 but he probably started in his 20’s. He is then documented to be a photographer on his death certificate in 1916 at age 69.

Since there is no address on this cabinet card, the time frame cannot be narrowed through his biography.

The physical characteristics of the card do indicate a range of 1889-1896.
