Ruth Winslow Album - Carroll Co., KY Historical Society

 

The Album

     This album resides in the Carroll Co., KY Historical Society collection.  I was kindly allowed to use a laptop and a scanner to copy the photos.  Some but not all were identified, either from inscriptions on the backs of the photos, or by inscriptions in the album.  The album inscriptions may have been added by Historical Society members who either personally knew or recognized the subject(s) of a photo.  Unfortunately, I did not keep track of the order in which the photos in the album had been mounted, which may have given some hint about the unidentified photos.  As a result, they are in approximate alphabetical order.

Album Cover inscribed: "Ruth Winslow  Christmas 1884

Pages within have slide-in pockets to hold cabinet cards, four to a page.

Cabinet cards, consisting of a photographic print mounted on a stiff  4¼" wide x 6½" high card, were a popular form of photographs during the four decades from the 1870's through the 1900's.

Most of the cards in the album, dated from the apparent age of an identified subject, appear to date from right around 1885-1890.

The album also contains several loose photographs from well after 1900.

Ruth Winslow was born in 1864, and would have been 20 yrs when she started the album.

Lewis-Drury, Sarah ''Sallie''. Age and family relationship (if any) undetermined..jpg

She is the same approximate age as Ruth Winslow, and was probably a school friend.

Unidentified Adult Female 1 Miama, MO photographer, tentatively Katherine Troutman, but probably Maynie Bond Winslow before marriage.jpg
Unidentified Adult Female 1, flip side of photo with initials MBW (Possibly Maynie Bond- Winslow) Sep 14, 1885.jpg

The photographer's imprint on the front reads: "Frank Leffler, Miama, MO".

There does not appear to be a "Miama" in Missouri, despite the photographer's imprint.  If he did indeed mean Miami (Saline Co.), Missouri, the young woman could be a member of the family of Daniel Branson Coltrane (1842-1937) family.  His oldest daughter, Mary Juanita Coltrane (1873-1948) would have been 12 yrs. old.

The other photograph of Mary Juanita Coltrane in this album appears to be the same young woman. 

Even though Maynie (Bond) Winslow (1872-1957) is also about the correct age, and bears more than a superficial resemblance to the photo, Mary Juanita Coltrane is a better match.
Unidentified adult Female 2 - Ruth Winslow.jpg

This photograph appears to be the same young woman as in the photograph below identified as Ruth Winslow (1864-1893), daughter of William Beverley Winslow (1814-1883) and Martha Jane Woolfolk (1826-1905), and wife of Henry Schueman (1860-1929), and the mother of Henry W. Schueman (b.1893).

The name Schueman is often spelled Schuerman in written records.
Unidentified female child ca 1885.jpg

Female or no, this child appears to be a dead ringer for the child identified as Henry W. Schuerman earlier in this collection.
Winslow, Katherine Troutman.jpg

In 1887, Katherine (Katie) Troutman (1862-1940's), daughter of John C. Troutman (abt. 1833-?) and Mary Unknown (abt. 1838-?), married William Beverley Winslow (1862-1930's), the son of William Beverley Winslow (1814-1883) and Martha Jane Woolfolk (1826-1905).

A poorly legible census of 1870 in Carroll Co., KY calls her Lorenk Troutman .  It turns out that this is Logan K., Logan being her mother's maiden name.  She is the daughter of John C. Troutman (abt. 1833-?) and Esther Mary Logan (abt. 1838-?).
Winslow, Mariam Smith ca 1885 (wife of Daniel Branson Coltrane).jpg

Mariam Smith Winslow (1857-1915), daughter of William Beverley Winslow (1814-1883) and Martha Jane Woolfolk (1826-1905) married Daniel Branson Coltrane (1842-1937).  They had  a daughter, Ruth Louise Coltrane (1891-1965), who married Charles Albert Cannon (1892-1971).
Winslow, Maynie Bond (wife of Pierce G Winslow).jpg

Maynie Laura Bond (1872-1957), daughter of Robert Lewis Bond (1836-1916) and Martha Jane Ramey (1850-1907).  She married (1st) Pierce Godbey Winslow (1873-1948), son of William Beverley Winslow (1814-1883) and Martha Jane Woolfolk (1826-1905).  She and Pierce divorced and both remarried. 

She married (2nd) Clarence Seward Smith (1872-1934), not related to the Smiths in this album since his family lived in Nova Scotia for generations.

A number of photographs of Maynie Bond are present in other albums on this web site.  Highlights are as follows.
James Andrew Bond Album:
     022 written in album- 'Mayney Bond'.jpg
Winslow, Pauline. Family relationship unknown..jpg

Someone at the historical society probably recognized and marked in the album the name "Pauline Winslow", but had incorrectly assumed that her last name was Winslow because she was the mother of Lucy Ann Winslow (1863-1950), the wife of Henry Moore Winslow (1850-1931).

She is actually Pauline (Karr) Cooper (abt.1839-?), daughter of Thomas Madison Karr (1812-1851) and Lucy Ann Gentry (1814-1900).  Pauline married John C. Cooper (abt.1834-?).  One of their four children, Lucy Ann Cooper (1863-1950), married Henry Moore Winslow (1850-1931), son of William Beverley Winslow (1814-1883) and Martha Jane Woolfolk (1826-1905).
Winslow, Pierce Godbey.jpg

Pierce Godbey Winslow (1873-1948) was the last child of William Beverley Winslow (1814-1883) and Martha Jane Woolfolk (1826-1905).  About 1895, he married (1st) Maynie Laura Bond (1872-1957).  They divorced 1900-1910 and both remarried.

Pierce Godbey Winslow married (2nd) Ethel Smith (1870-1948), daughter of James W. Smith (1840-1916), (who, being a Michigan-born yankee, is not closely related to the Kentucky Smiths in this album) and Martha Jane Dempsey (1846-1925).

Winslow, Ruth. ca 1884.jpg
Winslow, Ruth, flip side of photo. Inscribed ''T. E. Grove, 4th & Jeff., Louisville, Ky.'' (Possibly Thomas E. Grove - relationship unknown.).jpg

Ruth Winslow (1864-1993) is the daughter of William Beverley Winslow (1814-1883) and Martha Jane Woolfolk (1826-1905), and wife of Henry Schueman (1860-1929), and the mother of Henry W. Schueman (b.1893).

The name Schueman is often spelled Schuerman in written records.

Huddleston, the photographer having the FMH logo, was the most common photographer of the cabinet cards in the album of James Andrew Bond, which also features Carroll Co., Kentucky subjects.
Winslow, William Beverly Jr. (b.1862).jpg

William Beverly Winslow (probably at least III rather than Jr., since his grandfather was William Winslow)(1862-1930's), son of William Beverley Winslow (1814-1883) and Martha Jane Woolfolk (1826-1905), married Katherine (Katie) L. Troutman (1862-1940's), daughter of John C. Troutman (abt. 1833-?) and Esther Mary Logan (abt. 1838-?),.

Troutman (1862-1940's), daughter of John C. Troutman (abt. 1833-?) and Esther Mary Logan (abt. 1838-?),.
