This is a tin type of Samuel Cole taken sometime before 1865 to advertise a
Penmanship Class he was going to teach in the community.
(The advertisement will be posted on the miscellaneous photo page site at a future date.)
The photograph is an old tin type, maybe 1/2 inch x 1 inch or smaller. It is in a paper matte.
Samuel was born in 1842 in Dillsboro, Dearborn county, Indiana.
He married Margaret F. Wheeler in 1860 and died in 1868.
The photograph was submitted by Sheri LeQuia. Thank you Sheri!
