In Response To: Re: H.P. Kirk Photography Studio (Sharon R. Becker)

I am unable to find the IAGenWeb "Kirk Photography Studio" page Sharon R. Becker was going to create 5/29/2012. Does it exist?

I have a carte-de-viste, in portrait view, of a little girl, maybe two years old, with "Minnie Miller, cousin" handwritten in ink on the back. I think she is the daughter of Francis E. & Emma Jane (Billings) Miller. (The Frank E. Miller who was acquitted of murdering his father-in-law, Luther A. Billings near Rockford). Minnie is 5 in the 1880 Census of Yankton, Dakota Territory. This photo probably dates to 1876 or 1877.

The photographer's information is printed on the back in landscape, pretty much taking up the entire card.
