Carte-de-visite of possibly Catherine Manser Stow, ca. 1862

Title

Carte-de-visite of possibly Catherine Manser Stow, ca. 1862

Description

According to the family, Belle Dufour Stepleton, Catharine's granddaughter, identified this photo, but we're not absolutely certain that she is correct. If it is Catharine, she is not wearing her spectacles, and would appear to be in her late 60s or early 70s. Catharine attained the age of 70 in 1881. Both the clothing and the stye of the image appear to date from an earlier era, so we have to consider that Judith Hyde Manser (d. 1871), Livia Hayward Stow (d. 1858), or someone else could be the subject, and that this carte-de-visite may have been copied from an earlier cased image (daguerreotype, tintype, or ambrotype). There is a good chance it isn't Livia Stow as she died before the invention of carte-de-visites."
