I've "rescued" an old photograph of Ida CHAMBERLAIN which was taken at the
Alexander Studio in Albia, Iowa. The photograph was probably taken in the
1880's or 1890's with Ida appearing to be in her teens or 20's at the time.
Based on limited research, I believe that this may be a photograph of Ida
Isabelle or Isabel CHAMBERLAIN b. 16 October 1872 to parents John Henry
CHAMBERLAIN and Sarah Elizabeth BREDWELL. Ida married Walter Scott RICE on
15 Dec 1892 in Lovilia, IA and died 8 Apr 1962.
In the 1880 census of Union, IA the CHAMBERLAIN Family is recorded as
John CHAMBERLAIN, age 52, born in OH, a Farmer, parents born in VA/NJ
Sarah CHAMBERLAIN, wife, age 44, born in OH, parents born in OH
James E. CHAMBERLAIN, son, age 21, born in IA, a Laborer
Henry Z. CHAMBERLAIN, son, age 17, born in IA, a Laborer
John W. CHAMBERLAIN, son, age 15, born in IA, a Laborer
Otis Y. CHAMBERLAIN, son, age 12, born in IA, a Laborer
Ida A. CHAMBERLAIN, dau, age 7, born in IA
I am hoping to locate someone from this family so that this wonderful old
photograph can be returned to their care. If you are a member of this
family, or know someone who might be, please contact me.
I'm visiting Portland OR and just bought a family Bible in an antique shop.
It is the Bible of William A. and Jennie May Rader Humphrey. William was b.
Albia, Monroe Co. IA 1865 and was the son of George and Martha Wills
Humphrey. The family apparently came to OR with a wagon train. I have no use for
the Bible. It is beautiful and large. If this is your family and you're
interested in the Bible, please contact me at _bperk930(a)aol.com_
(mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org) . You can have it for cost plus postage.
