I recently rescued this very nice cabinet card photo from a garage sale--- for $1.00.
It's from a Blue Earth, Minnesota photography studio-- circa 1890.
Someone had written 'Jessie Stowe Scott' on the backside... and a little research found that Jessie Stowe was born in Elmore, MN on 3 December 1885, the daughter of John & Ellen Stowe.
It seems that the family eventually moved to Hecla, South Dakota. She had a younger sister Marion Stearns and Jessie married William Scott in 1906, and they had a son- Preston Scott (died in 1969). Jessie died in 1972 and her Findagrave memorial has a pretty detailed obituary... and it seems that she may have a Grandson living on the West Coast.
It would be wonderful to reunite this great photo with a family member who will appreciate & treasure it!
