CDV of toddler Allen Mathewson; taken by E. L. Willis of Milford, Massachusetts

Carte de visite of a young child identified on reverse as Allen Mathewson.   His expression is priceless.

The photograph was taken by E. L. Willis of Milford.  Researching online, I found references to an E. L. Willis photography studio of Milford, Massachusetts.

Allen may have been visiting relatives at the time his photograph was taken or he may have lived in the area.  

I found an Allen Mathewson, son of Henry and Susannah (Allen) Mathewson, lived at Brookfield, Massachusetts, not far from Milford.  

If you have any theories as to the family history of the Allen Mathewson shown above, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
