So it appears that James R Anglin worked as retoucher and operator for another studio before joining Charles E Randall in a partnership at 75 1/2 Peachtree in 1894. They worked together until 1897. Then Anglin drops out of the photography business to become a postal clerk and never returns.

Evansville, IN, death certificate Charles E Randall dies at age 67-71 of septicemia.

The locations of Charles E Randall, between 1884 and 1892, have not been ascertained.

Records for Randall are inconsistent to say the least. Building a coherent timeline is difficult when the documentation is hard to believe.

For instance the US census reflects a different date of birth for Randall each decade and then the death certificate is different than all the rest. All other factors match. (see below)


Atlanta (GA) Constitution - 04 Feb 1895

Charles E Randall and his son Charles W Randall, both photographers, are often listed as Chas Randal, C Randall or just Randall. With this in mind, the timeline here has been assembled with entries that are fairly certain for Charles E Randall, unless otherwise noted.

Cephas M Huddleston




Photographer: Huddleston
Newcastle, IN
(Blind Stamp)

Cephas M Huddleston
(1832-1914)

Cephas M Huddleston and his wife Carolyn worked as a photographic team. They didn’t seem to have a permanent studio but moved around, staying in a town for a week or two and then moving on or back to the home base in Spiceland, IN. Through newspaper items a few of his dates and locations can be established. The years between 1890 and 1910 are well documented.

There is a large collection of glass plate photographs by Cephas Huddleston at Indianahistory.org.

1832 Oct 17

1860 Jul 26
Union, IN, US census Cephas Huddleston, 28, as farmer with 20 year old wife Carolyn and 9 month old son Foster; (See note)

It is not pertinent to the history of C M Huddleston as a photographer as he was still a farmer in 1860, but interesting to note: Huddleston and his family were enumerated twice in that decade's census. On 03 Aug 1860, just ten days after being counted in Union, Indiana, the US census in Marion, KS, enumerated S M Huddleston, 28, farmer, 19 year old wife Carolyn and one year old son Foster. (“Cephas” was occasionally mistaken as being spelled with an “S”.) The 1860 US census lists son Foster as being born in “K T” for Kansas Territory. (Kansas did not become a state until 1861.) In all later documents Foster Huddleston is shown as being born in Kansas.

The cabinet card at the top could have been done as early as August of 1891. Although there is no further documentation, C M Huddleston and his wife probably visited the town several times during their travels between 1890 and 1910.

There's a large collection of Huddleston photographs at Indiana Historical Society

Michigan state records, William Allen Carson dies at age 76

Carson moved around a lot. Records found him in Toronto, Detroit, Peoria, Hillsdale, and Cleveland. When his location is unknown, the timeline above lists places he was NOT.

While still living in Hillsdale, MI, he was active in the Eureka Dancing Club and the Hillsdale Amateur Dramatis Association.

William A Carson apparently worked for other photographers most of his career. It appears the only time he had his own studio was between 1870 and 1880 when he was working in Hillsdale, MI. And at least some of that time he was partnered with Reuben L Andrew as “Andrew and Carson”.
