Elizabeth Washburn

Elizabeth Washburn of Marion, Ohio

Another beautiful cabinet card from Photomuseum on eBay. The name on the bottom is Elizabeth Washburn and the photo was taken in Marion, Ohio. There’s only one Elizabeth Washburn that I could find in Marion, Ohio. This is likely, Elizabeth Morrall Washburn. She was the daughter of Samuel and Margaret Morall, born in 1845 in Ohio and lived in Marion County all her life. Census records from 1850-1880 place her there. She married Elias Washburn in 1851 in Marion. It’s possible her husband died before 1870, as she lived alone with their children starting in that census.

A great portrait. I hope she finds a family home.
