Sally Hosey Child Parsons

DSCF9571  Tintype 1/16 plate
On the back is a tag that reads Grandma Parsons, Sally hosey Child Parsons,Born 1806

This Tintype along with two Abrotypes were found together at a shop several months ago.One was posted earlier to this blog as “Dr Mason photographed in Boston” and the second Ambrotype is now posted below.The woman photographed here as well as the man from Boston both have such amazing detail all 3 were probably taken in the late 1850s or very early 1860s possibly by the very same photographer.

Now I do not know for certain that these images are all from Boston but since  all 3 were found together and all 3 are the same size and matted the same way leads me to think that they could be,this of course is just a guess,but it is a good guess!
