Every so often I get a question from a reader that, while I don’t have an answer, feel that another reader or readers may be able to help with. While we have sections for identifying people or places in photographs, not all of the questions I get fall into those categories. So I’m setting up a new section where I will post questions from readers where you can help.
For the first installment, I have a photograph from a dear friend of our family, Sandra Luebking. She sent meÂ this photograph of Henry SmithÂ from her own collection.Â (Click onÂ an image to enlarge it.) The reverse of the photograph says,
Cor. Military and Water Sts,
Port Huron, Michigan
We think his stole and cap may be representative of a fraternal order, but are not familiar with it. I’ve enlarged the lower portion of the stole that appears to carry an insignia. If you can help with this mystery, please add your comments below.
If you have a question you think we can help with, send it to me at Juliana@Ancestry.com.
