From Hattie, January 27 1897
The back of the photograph is annotated "From Hattie, January 27, 1897." We don't know anymore about Hattie than that but we do know the photo was taken in Union City Tennessee by H.E. Wallace. A quick search of period newspapers shows that H.E. Wallace purchased a gallery in South Carolina and was leaving Union City on August 15, 1908. The newspaper snippet said "Parties desiring him to make photographs call at once." Source: The Hickman Courier, July 30 1908. Another source said he was the older brother of D.B. Wallace of Warsaw, Kentucky. D.B. was born in 1857 in Ohio according to Census records.
