    Wonderful, all those invisible mothers (or nearly so). I have one of my great great grandmother holding my great grandmother on her lap. She is simply cut off above her collar. The ferrotype was taken, I think, to pass along to the baby’s father, who was of to the Civil War. She was born in early 1861, he left in the fall, so the dtes fit. Fun to see so many others. You are a whizz!
