In 2012 this album came into the loving care of Sandy (Fox) Whitney, great great granddaughter of Sarah (Stratton), wife of Abraham Richard Fox who lived near Reelsville, Putnam Co., Indiana. It is believed that all the photos in the album are related to the Daily, Fox, Stratton and Girton families although many, such as this handsome young man, are not identified.

Sandy is attempting to identify all persons in the album and learn more about each of them through additional research. If you can help identify or add further information to this photo, please contact us.

A note about photographer Derstine: From The Photographic Journal of America, Volume 27, published in 1890 the following was written of photographer C.W. Derstine: "Mr. C.W. Derstine, Lewistown, Pa., favors us with a number of cabinet pictures, some of which are portraits and some are landscapes. The portraits are particularly fine, and examples of judicious exposure and careful development. In some of them the renderings of the lace dresses of the ladies and their pearl necklaces show most creditable work." Additionally, Charles Derstine was enumerated in the 1880 census residing in Lewistown and was listed as a twenty-one year-old "artist" born in Pennsylvania and boarding in the house of merchant, Frank Kline.
