Carte de Visite of a Middle-Aged man, taken by Buell, Chateaugay, New York.
On the reverse is some faint handwriting identifying the subject. He is possibly Ed Mears, but I've been unable to find anything about an Ed or Edward or Edgar Mears in Chateaugay, New York or Franklin County, New York. The original handwriting is blurred by a band of discoloration. The first name almost looks like Eid; perhaps it's meant to be Ernest.
I'm hoping that a reader may recognize this fellow from family albums or recognize the Mears name from Chateaugay, New York or Franklin County, New York. If so, I'd most appreciate an update.
Thanks for stopping by!
