I recently purchased a pair of quarter plate tintypes on ebay and found some notes inside. I am happy to restore these pictures to the family at cost plus shipping.
The pictures were taken around 1870. The married couple are identified as Henning Ibie Nehls born Oct 13 or 16, 1835 or 1836, and Bertha O. Richter born April 18, 1843 or 1844.
The second picture is of three children identified as Lydia Anna Nehls born 2-28-1866; Martha Amelia Nehls born 3-16-1861, and William Herman Nehls born 6-25-1867 or 1868.
The notes were written by a former owner of the tintypes who was a descendant of those pictured. There is additional information on the notes which I will happily share with any interested parties.
Let me know if you are interested.
