John van der Veer
Leather case
-
"40"
Slightly out of focus and dark image

John somehow fits in with a family, identified by the children of Eleanor.
Below is a family tree to my best ability (may contain errors). The photos were sold separately
and I wasn't able to buy them all up. The 4 below stayed together and the other photographs
are taken from the seller's listing. The photo of Mary and Frances was taken by Bogardus,
the photo of Eleanor was in a Brady case. The first photo of Mary Gildersleeve, and the first of Ella
are in the same photo but split for the family tree. Mother and daugther are holding hands. Mary Rogers
was also found in a velvet oval case, perhaps her photo was taken at the same moment as Mary Gildersleeve's.
