Nelson Britton Family Photograph
Uncle Nelson Britton & Family
A very old photograph of the Britton Family. On the reverse is written "Uncle Nelson Britton and Family, and there is no photographer or location identified. Whoever wrote on the back of this photo also wrote on the backs of two others in the collection ... photographs of Uncle John Mathews and another of Aunt Zella Bunnell. A sweet old family photograph probably from the late 19th century or the very early 20th century. Gentle, hard-working folk, long dead, I think. There is someone out there that will cherish this old picture.
I'll be posting the other two photos very soon. All three names on the 3 photographs, Bunnell, N. Britton, and John Mathews appear on the Lycoming County Genealogy Pages. I have found other items in the collection from Lycoming County and Tioga County PA, and these people may have been from this area of Pennsylvania. Also, take a look at Joyce Tice's Tri-County Genealogy and History site for more information on Mathews and Bunnell. You should spend some time on that website if you are interested in the history of Chemung County New York, Tioga County Pennsylvania or Bradford County Pennsylvania.
