HANNAH RICH PHOTO ALBUM
Town of Kortright, Delaware County, NY
(Patty Davidson-Peters of Flagstaff, Arizona designed the first website that showcased these pictures, but that website is no longer in existence)
Presentation on the dcnyhistory.org Website by Joyce Riedinger
This album is 5" wide and 5.5" high, made of tooled leather, with brass fittings. Sadly, the latches on the back—that would have closed the album when fitted over the front—are missing. The first page was badly separated from the binding. I used to work in a library book bindery and so I took a bold step and glued the broken binding. Pictured above is Stephen Rich Struthers, who gave the album to Hannah on the occasion of her wedding to William Blakely Peters on 17 July 1861.
The following images are listed in alphabetical order to assist people in finding their loved ones. Numbers after names indicates the position of photograph in the album - I figure the photograph’s position in the book relates to the order in which Hannah Rich received it - Any asterisk indicates that this picture was loose in the album.) --Carolyn McPherson, March 8, 2019
