These excellent photographs are of Albert S Hatch and Maria Miller Hatch. They were married in about 1859 and had a daughter, Marietta in 1860 (d. 1953).

Albert enlisted in the 16th Connecticut Infantry in August 1862, was wounded at Antietam a month later, and was wounded again on the Overland Campaign in Virginia in May 1864. He went home disabled by illness, and probably never really recovered.

Maria died in November 1865 and Albert, of tuberculosis, in May 1867.
