Annie L. Lewis, Oct 1882, Knoxville, Tennessee
The subject of this picture is Annie L. Lewis. It was taken in October, 1882. We know this because she was very thoughtful and wrote not only her name on the back of the picture but the city, Knoxville, TN and the month and year, Oct. 1882. In addition she noted the photograph was "for Sweet Sophie". The Sophie she is talking about is Sophia Riley Gunn Moran, the wife of John Williamson Moran.
I don't know if Annie was a distant relative of Sophia's or if she was just one of her many friends. Census records indicate that there was an Annie Laurie Lewis who was born in 1863 in Knoxville, Tennessee. Her parents were Joseph Flavius John Lewis and Laura Mitchell. Annie died December 6, 1948 in Knoxville.
