Horace W Jones (c. 1860)

7 September 2022

This lovely carte-de-visite is of Horace W Jones, a 20 year old farmer in Wyoming County in Western New York State. About 2 years after he sat for that picture he was wounded in the leg at Antietam, then a Private in the 21st New York Infantry.

The photograph, an eBay find, was contributed to Horace’s Findagrave memorial by Ray Jackson.
