This page is alphabetized N through Q.

Note: This is a work in progress. Each photographer takes most of a day to research. Lost Gallery will be going though the alphabet top to bottom until all photographers have been examined.


Most often a found photograph is of unknown people by an unknown photographer. Occasionally the names of the people in a photograph are written on it later. But, very seldom do we ever learn the name of the photographer.

In the case of the Cabinet Card and the Carte de Viste (CDV) the photographer's name or studio name is often included as part of the mounting. It is sometimes at the narrow end of the mounting board on the front and sometimes it is presented in an elaborate fashion on the reverse of the card.

These pages of the LOST GALLERY will present all of the CABINET CARDS in the collection where the photographer is known.

The name of the photographer will be repeated in the text so that it can be included in internet searches by Google and Bing and the rest.

Cabinet Card woman with hat
Photographer: W. R. Ireland
West Side Square
Holton, Kas.
Cabinet Card family of five
Photographer: W. R. Ireland
West Side Square
Holton, Kas

William R. Ireland (Feb 1862 - 26 Mar 1945)

W. R. Ireland was photographer for 62 years, according to one obituary, beginning in 1883. His studio was apparently always on the west side of the square in downtown Holton, KS.

From this it is concluded that he was active between 1883 and 1945. Judging from the clothing, the photograph at the far left was made about 1885 and the photograph, near left was finished closed to 1910.

Photographer: Iron Cottage Studio

According to one example on eBay, the studio name at one time was Fitzgerald and Hoffman, Iron Cottage Studio, Gatesville, TX. Nothing further has been found.

Cabinet Card man Portrait
Photographer: Jarrard
86 Calhoun Street
Fort Wayne, Ind.
(note: See Miner & Dexter listings at 44 Calhoun Street, Fort Wayne, Ind.)
On the reverse is written very lightly
Sabastian Onoger

Harry A Jarrard was found in the US Census four times, 1880, 1900, 1910 and 1920. At each of these enumerations, he couldn’t seem to remember his own age exactly and in the 1920 count even the location of his birth moves from Indiana to Ohio. Those dates are correspondingly, 1858, 1851, 1852 and 1864. But all other facts match: family, location, occupation.

There are several items in Indiana newspapers about Harry Jarrard and his wife Emma.

His death still remains undocumented exactly. He was still alive for the 1920 US census which was enumerated January 05 of the year. He must be presumed deceased by Feb 05 1921 when his wife was advertising her own studio, which she had not done before. Although Jarrard’s last will and testament was written and witnessed 21 Aug 1919, it was not registered in probate record until 18 Mar 1924 three years after his death.

Note also when dating a cabinet card, the last name “Jarrard” probably continued after his death as the name of the studio imprinted on cabinet cards, although it appears his wife Emma was now running the studio. The studio addresses are probably more accurate.

Dad and six kids
Photographer: Johnson Bros.
Morris, Minn.

There were at least four photographers named Johnson in Minnesota during the cabinet card era. There is no evidence so far that any of them were related. It appears all of them were immigrants.

One of them, Jens P. Johnson married and had a son in Morris, MN, in 1892. This could be one of the “Brothers” but evidence of this has not been found.

(See Below)


cabinet card
This is the reverse of the card on the left. Note the address is "Main" street.

Henry Melville Judd (10 Sep 1848 - 20 May 1921)

H. M. Judd was born in Whately, MA. His mother died when he was 12 and his father died when he was 14. He never married and lived in boarding houses and rented rooms all his life.

From Whatley, MA, he moved to Middlebury, MA, at age 12.
He is found in Amherst, MA, in 1870 living next door to another photographer when he was 22.
Then in 1877 he is in Springfield, MA, age 29. He sets up his own studio there over a drug store.
Here is a timeline of his studio locations based on documents found.
1877 - 1882 studio over Knox Drug store
1883 studio at 42 Front
1889 - 1890 at 87 Front
1890 - 1892 at 87 Main (street name change)
1895 - 1912 at 13 Church. Chicopee Falls, MA
1913 - 1920 unknown
1921 at 71 Market.

Using these dates the card at the left imprinted with 87 Front Street, must have been finished between about 1884 and 1890. The other card from 87 Main Street would have been done between 1890 and 1895.



Cabinet Card two men
Photographer:
N. Kanter
Edwardsville, Pa.

Neuman Kanter
(6 Apr 1873 - 22 Dec 1934)

His DOB and immigration dates vary from document to document. The dates used here are from his immigration petition.

Neuman Kanter was apparently a very enterprising person. In 1904 he was operating a wholesale liquor business, a grocery and meat market and a photograph studio. This was all at 504 E Main, Edwardsville, PA, which was also where he lived.

The cabinet card at the left must have been done in 1902 or 1904.


You want me to WHAT?
Photographer: H. E. Kelley

The single reference to an H. E. Kelley, cabinet card era photographer, was found in an 1899 Oakland, CA, city directory. The listing shows the photographer in Irvington, apparently a small community (at that time) 27 miles southeast of Oakland.

No other information has been found.



Cabinet Card young man
Photographer:
A. J. Kenyon
Port Leden, N. Y.

A. J. Kenyon was found in three city directories that happened to include the small town of Port Leyden. They are 1868 (Booneville), 1871 and 1873 (Utica). After a page by page search of the 1870 US Census covering Port Leydon, NY, only one person with the name Kenyon was found; a Joseph Kenyon, with wife Julie. However, that Joseph Kenyon was a farmer, already 66 years old in 1870, probably too old to be a photographer in the cabinet card era.

It can only be documented so far, that A. J. Kenyon was an active photographer from 1868 to 1873.




Cabinet Card Woman
Photographer: Killion
343 Collinsville Ave.
East St. Louis Ills.

There were two photographers with the name George Killion. One worked in East Saint Louis, IL apparently all his life. The other was George KIllion Jr. who worked in Lancaster, PA, and was apparently never in East Saint Louis.

The George Killion from East Saint Louis, IL, worked as photographer from about 1889 to 1920 always apparently at 343 Collinsville.

Photographer: William E. Kingsbury

Nothing has been found on William E, Kingsbury, Sturgeon, MO.

Greenville, Tex.

There were many photographers named Knight in the cabinet card era, three of them in the right geographical area.
Edgar B. Knight
Little Rock, AR

William S. Knight
New Orleans, LA

Thomas B. Knight
New Orleans, LA

No evidence so far on which, if any, might be the photographer here.

Photographer:
Lane & Co.
199-201 So. High St.
Columbus, O.

John R. Lane ( 1855 - )
John R. Lane spent all of his life in Columbus, OH. He was a photographer but worked most of the time for other studios, such as L. M. Baker. Lane appears in many city directories as photographer but is listed only three times, in 1898, 1899 and 1900, as “Lane & Co.”

In 1897 he calls himself “President” of the Columbus Photographic Art Co. at 199-201 So. High.
In 1898 he is listed in the business section as Lane & Co. at 199 ½ S High
In 1899 he is listed in the business section as Lane & Co. at 199 ½ S High
In 1900 he is listed in the business section as Lane & Co. at 199 ½ S High

Oddly he is not in the 1901 or the 1902 Columbus city directory at all.

In 1903 he is listed as photographer but not in the business section which probably means he’s working for someone else.

The cabinet card at the left was probably done between 1898 and 1900. This appears to be the only time John Lane had a studio of his own.

Cabinet Card woman
Photographer:
Lilienthal's
121 Canal Street
New Orleans, LA.

Theodore Lilienthal (1829 - 25 Nov 1894)

Theodore Lilienthal was active from about 1862 through 1894. There is an excellent biography at the
KnowLA, Encyclopedia of Louisiana website.

Lilienthal worked in New Orleans, LA, for nearly his entire career. For dating cabinet cards from this photographer, the actual studio address will narrow it down.

1854 - 1864 as photographer worked with daguerreotypes (Unknown address)
1865 - 1875 as photographer at 131 Polydras, New Orleans, LA
1876 as photographer at 121 Polydras, New Orleans, LA
1877 as photographer at 181 Canal, New Orleans, LA
1890 - 1894 as photographer at 109 Canal, New Orleans. LA

The cabinet card here must have been finished around 1876.

Documents show that D. A. Loomis was an active photographer from 1880 to 1900. There was little in the way of a city directory for Fredonia, KS, so there’s not much supporting evidence.

Photographer:Jos. J. Machann
Dallas, Lyons and Smithville

Joseph Justin Machann
(Jan 1871 - 07 Dec 1928)

In his short life, Jos. J. Machann was an enterprising individual apparently. He was a merchant, dealt in real estate and was a postmaster of Cistern, Fayette, TX, but nowhere in his records does it mention “photographer”.

It’s just a guess only: perhaps he handled it only as a side line while he operated his general merchandise stores in Schulenberg,TX, and Cystern, TX, from about 1900 to 1910.

Gray skies are gonna clear up.
Photographer: H. Manderfeld
Gainseville, Texas

Hubert Manderfeld (3 Nov 1851 - 1 Jan 1917)

Hubert Manderfeld immigrated to the US the same year he was born. His family settled in Minnesota. Sometime between 1885 and 1900, Hubert Manderfeld moved to Gainesville, TX, where he worked as a photographer until his death.

Records show he relocated his studio at least three times, so the addresses and dates might help date a cabinet card.

Man and fringe chair
Photographer: E. M. Marschall
Honey Grove, Texas

Edward M. Marschall
(9 Dec 1850 - 9 Jan 1897)

E. M. Marschall was born in Barnwell, SC. He was orphaned by the time he was 8 years old. The 1870 US Census finds him working as a clerk in a relative’s store still in South Carolina.

A 1878 tax roll shows him in Honey Grove, TX. The first and only mention of photography is the 1880 US Census.

He apparently partnered with a Brekeen in a pharmacy or general store as there are several mentions of the operation in the Honey Grove Signal, the town newspaper.

He is mentioned again in the 1895 Honey Grove tax roll and then he dies in 1897 at the age of 46.

He apparently practiced photography as a sideline as there doesn’t seem to be any mention of it other than the 1880 US Census. The cabinet card here was probably done near that year.




Cabinet Card man with beard
Photographer: Gilkey & Martin
226 S. Main
Ottawa, Kansas
Before 1894

It appears that the Martin of “Gilkey and Martin” was actually William H. “Dad” Martin who began the “Tall Tales” postcard business. These were cards depicting giant grasshoppers, rabbits, cabbages or onions, promoting some exaggerated comical tall tale.

Martin took over the photograph studio from Gilkey in 1894 and began making his photo-montage comic cards.

He sold the photography studio the next year in 1895, to work full time on his post card business.

He became very wealthy and sold the postcard business in 1912. He then started the National Sign Company.

Cabinet Card Portrait young woman
Photographer: Gilkey & Martin
226 S. Main Street
Ottawa, Kansas

John Henry Gilkey
(13 Jun 1853 - 22 Mar 1923)

The records are a bit sketchy but apparently Gilkey and Martin worked together between 1886 and 1894. After that Martin worked alone as a photographer until he sold his studio in 1895.

It is important to note that although John H. Gilkey is the only Gilkey found in the Ottawa, KS, area between 1886 and 1923 he is never noted as photographer in any document found so far.

John H. Gilkey arrived in Ottawa about 1903. He apparently left the photography business to do farming and the directories and census reflect that he is living in Richmond, a farming community just outside of Ottawa, KS. Richmond is included in the Ottawa city directory. He dies in 1923.

Weir City, Kansas
Cabinet Card woman
Photographer: Masten
Weir City, Kas.


No definite biography or time line has been developed for S. L Masten. An S. L. Masten was found in one Kansas Gazetteer for 1904 in Weir, KS. Another connection found was S. L. Masters, Des Moines, IA, 1871. The two are probably not connected.

Weir is a very small town in the south east corner of Kansas and it was even smaller in 1904. Although the Gazetteer says it has a population of 3,600, there are only about 150 names listed, living in the city. Two of them are photographers. R. L. Thorpe is also listed in that city.

Note that all three of the cards at the left have different imprints.

The cabinet card at the left must have been done around 1880 to 1918 when Blanche moved to Mansfield, OH. While she maintained the studio after her father’s death, she probably used the printed cards in stock.
