Mould of Wisconsin

Cabinet Card Man with Beard
Photographer Sim Mould
Baraboo, Wisconsin
Cabinet Card woman and baby
Photographer: Mould
Baraboo, Wis.

Mathew C Mould and Sarah Jane Islip had eight children, three daughters and five sons. Mathew and two sons, Simmons and Frederick were photographers. There was a considerable amount of information on the Moulds on Rootsweb, Ancestry, Cabinet Card Gallery and Photography in La Crosse, Wisconsin 1853-1930 By Edwin L. Hill

After immigrating to the US in 1850 the family lived in Newport, NY until about 1856. Mathew is noted once as working as a grocer. The family then moved to Baraboo, WI, where Mathew began his photographic study and business in 1857.

Records are thin but it appears Mathew opened the “Mould and Son” studio at 411 S 3rd, La Crosse, WI, about 1879. It is a bit speculative but the “Son” probably included both Frederick and Simmons Mould. Other sources say that both brothers learned the trade by working with their father.

By 1882, son Frederick had taken over sole operation of the firm in La Crosse, WI, changing the name to F W Mould Photographic Studio. In 1888 the studio was at 413 s 3rd.

Mathew C Mould died in 1890.

Baraboo, WI, where all three of the photographers lived at one time or another, has no city directory available so tracking some of their movements is limited.

Those cabinet cards labeled “Mould and Son” in Lacrosse, WI, would have been done between 1879 and 1882 by Mathew Mould and one of the sons.

If the card is imprinted with Mould and 413 s 3rd, La Crosse, WI, it was finished between about 1882 and 1893 by Frederick Mould

If the card is imprinted with Mould and 411 s 3rd, La Crosse, WI, it was probably finished 1894 or after and before 1900 by Frederick Mould

If stamped Mould or “F W Mould Photographic Studio,” in Baraboo, WI, it was probably done by Frederick between 1905 and 1920.

Cabinet cards labeled Mould at Madison, WI, were done by Frederick Mould between 1921 and 1923.

Nothing shows Frederick as a photographer after 1923.


Simmons Mould apparently stamped his work “Sim Mould,” “Simmons Mould” “S I Mould” or just “ Mould”

Simmons Mould worked in Baraboo, WI, from 1880 to 1900
797 Main, Dubuque, IA, from 1901 through 1904
Eighth Street, Dubuque, IA, 1908 (and possibly a couple years before)
1073 Main, Dubuque, IA, 1909 through 1916

It’s a complicated trail so if there are any suggestions of corrections please leave a comment.

Wilbur Fisk Kellogg



photographer: D R Kellogg
Reedsburg, Wis.

photographer: Kellogg
Reedsburg, Wisc.

Documents show that there were six maybe seven photographers named Kellogg in Minnesota and Wisconsin during the cabinet card era. It is probable that they were related in some way but accounts differ. John Dempster, Douglass Right, Wilbur Fisk and Edgar Sackett Kellogg were brothers, all born in Danby, NY. Henry Kellogg was a son of Edgar Sackett Kellogg.

Three other photographers in the area and named Kellogg were George W, Anson I and Mark. George W Kellogg appears twice, in Beaver Dam and Milwaukee, WI. For these three, no connection to the other Kellogg family has been made.

The Kellogg brothers apparently worked in several locations across the state of Wisconsin. While most of the cabinet card examples do not tell which of the Kellogg photographers did the work, they do usually tell where the photograph was made.

There was another group of photographers named Kellogg working In Connecticut and Vermont. So far no connection has been made to the Kellogg family working in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

The objective here is to discover when they worked in each town and which one it was if possible. Following is a list of locations and what information has been found to help tell when one of the brothers worked at that location. Not all sources agree exactly (as usual) but all items are listed anyway.

Sources are:

US census; city directories; Minnesota State business directory;

1870 - 1871 (WPI) Edgar Sackett Kellogg; imprinted as “New York Art Gallery” and possibly “Leavenworth and Kellogg”

1857 - 1858 (WPI) Douglas W Kellogg might be printed as “Kellog’s Photographic Studio” (with one “G”)
1860 - 1979 (WPI) D W Kellogg imprints might be “Kellogg’s Photographic Studio”
1873 - 1885 (WPI) Edgar Sackett Kellogg; possibly imprinted “Dodge and Co”
1880 (US census) Edgar Sackett Kellogg as photographer
(note: the D W Kellogg might possibly be Douglas Right Kellogg, but it might be an entirely separate Kellogg too)

1880 - 1881 (WPI) Edgar Sackett Kellogg and Henry J Kellogg (Edgar’s son)

Samuel Anderson Edmiston



Photographer: S. A. Edmiston
Camden, Ark.

John A Edmiston (1827 - 1883)
Samuel Anderson Edmiston (1852 - 1925)

Both father John Edmiston and son Samuel Edmiston are followed in this timeline as John worked alone and then with son Samuel as “Edmiston and Son” and then Samuel worked alone later. There is no indication that either of Samuel’s sons worked in photography so any cards imprinted “Edmiston and Son” will be John and Samuel Edmiston.

1895 Sep 05
Arcadia and Girard Kansas: There was a pair of photographers in Kansas called “Edmiston and Millington” at this time. The gallery is called “Star Gallery” in some newspaper mentions. The gallery was operated from about December 1894 to January 1896 by N E Edmiston and J B Millington. There is apparently no connection to S A Edmiston. See two ads below
1895 Nov 28
Pine Bluff, AR, state records, Samuel Edmiston’s son Landauer Pursley Edmiston is born
1896 thru 1898
No records were found showing the whereabouts of S A Edmiston during this period

1898
Chicago, IL, city directory Samuel Edmiston NOT listed
1899
Chicago, IL, city directory Samuel Edmiston as traveling salesman; 4929 Champlain av

1918 Apr 19
Berwyn, IL, state records, John’s wife Adelia dies at age 86
1925 Aug 13
Maywood, IL, Samuel Anderson Edmiston dies at age 98

The photograph at the top must have been made by Samuel Edmiston around 1888 to 1895 while he was living in Arkansas.

A card stamped only “Edmiston” would be difficult to date. John Edmiston began in photography about 1864 and continued until his death in 1885. Documents show his son Samuel Edmiston was a photographer from about 1880 to 1895 when he left Pine Bluff, AR, to be a traveling salesman based in Chicago, IL.

There was also a brief time in 1880 when father and son, John and Samuel, might have been working together.

Recap of places and dates:
Michigan: 1863 - 1894 (John)
Bushnell, IL: 1870 (John)
Canton, IL; 1880 (John and “John and son”)
Sedalia, MO; 1880 - 1883 (Samuel)
Pine Bluff, AR; 1883 - 1893 (Samuel)

These dates are based only on available documents. Actual time spans may be a bit longer.
