How to Identify the Right Couple in an Old Wedding Photo
Posted by Maureen

In the recent post 3 Clues to Identify Family in Old Wedding Photos, I asked a series of questions relating to this image belonging to William Davis: 



This week, I'm back with more information.

The clothing clues in this picture, including the woman's front-pleated skirt and  her bodice, all date the picture to the 1880s. Davis thinks the photo depicts William Issac Carrigan and Sarah Ann Hutton, who married Sept. 4, 1884.

Other Brides

To narrow the possibilities, I asked William if there were any other family weddings in the 1880s. There were three! (Four if you count the couple married in 1879, but I'll eliminate them for now. This bride's outfit is definitely from the 1880s.):
  • John Bailey Peyton Boswell and Lydia Ann Jane Trull married  Dec. 6, 1882, in Williamson Co, Ill.
  • Henry Wille and Elizabeth Theresa H. Bodedeker married circa 1886 possibly in St. Louis, Mo. 
  • William Issac Carrigan and Sarah Ann Hutton married Sept. 4, 1884, in Carrolton, Greene, Ill.

Financial Clues
All the couples except the Willes were from farming families. Henry Wille's father was a tavern owner who helped his son become a grocer. 

Armed with the list of other couples and some financial clues, I'm going to dig into the databases and see what other clues might pop up. I'll have more information next week.

    What are the major peculiarities of the wedding outfit in 1880s? I found 2 good college essays on History and Culture about the weddings at that time, but nothing is said about the clothes. I guess the main fact was that the weddings were farmers'.

    Regardless of whether a minute or not, pictures help keep memories of unique minutes alive. Close to pay to write my assignment observing an old picture, memories that may have been for some time overlooked return busting to life.

    She looks gorgeous doesn’t she? I love this picture. Do you have any idea who they are? I would like to know. They must be so rich otherwise they wouldn’t have had the money to afford getting a photo clicked. Best language learning program
