Also from Steve Mosier, "here's a mystery for you -- a Mapleton photo that I haven't been able to identify. It belonged to Josephine Snyder Carhart, the wife of Stephen Herculese Carhart, and is quite likely a Snyder or a Carhart. I inherited Josephine's photo album and a number of loose photos, and have spent 35 years trying to identify them. I've only been successful with about 30 of the 65-odd photos in the album, but Mapleton photos have not been a problem -- I've identified all but this one (not from the album). Most of my unknown photos are from Nevada, IA, Columbus, OH, or Platteville, WI."
Please email this county coordinator, if you recognize this young woman. Thanks for any help you can offer!
