    Looking for photos and/or pictures of Henry Morford & family

    Kenneth Cutler Wayfarer

      Looking for photos and/or pictures of Henry Morford, author 1823-1881, AND more particularly his family. Wife Blanche DeVon Patterson Morford and daughters: Eveleen Morford Wilson, Caroline "Carlie" Morford Beardsley, Anna Morford Pierce, and Lillian Morford Taylor. I have several carte vista photos of Henry Morford but none of his family. Thanks!

          Dear Mr. Cutler,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          We located the following image of Henry Morford available from the Internet Archives; however, it may be similar to the ones you describe in your request. 


          We suggest contacting the Center for Brooklyn History, formerly the Brooklyn Historical Society for possible historical photographic collections of past Brooklyn residents.  Their website is now part of the Brooklyn Public Library and may be searched online, or you may contact them at (718) 614-3954.  Their hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 10 am-4 pm.


          Old New York City newspapers, via the Library of Congress website Chronicling America, may include photographs of the Morford family, especially the society pages.


          Finally, we suggest searching for his family tree on Ancestry. If you have an account with Ancestry, you may be able to reach out to a descendant via their message boards. If you do not have an account, you may wish to check your local library since many library systems subscribe to Ancestry, making it free for their patrons.


          We hope this is helpful.  Best of luck in your research!
