I believe this picture to be of my great-grandfather, William Taylor. William moved from Lancashire to Manayunk, Pennsylvania with his brother-in-law, Thomas Thomasson, around 1862–the time of the cotton famine. William was deaf and dumb from childhood and was still in Manayunk in 1870 but married in 1874 back in England.
