J. Moss Jr, 1870

This is just one of the many pictures in the Moran family personal collection.  Most of the people remain a mystery because there's no name written on the back.  In this instance we have a lot more information than normal.  First, we know the photograph was taken in Leavenworth Kansas by the prominent photographer E.E. Henry because of the photographers mark but more importantly we have a name and a date.  On the backside of the photo Mr. Moss wrote "Compliments J. Moss, Jr., 31st Dec. 1870.

I still don't know who he is or how he knew the Moran's.  Perhaps a descendant will google his name someday and find a picture of their long lost relative.  At least, that's my hope.

Compliments
