Henry Knox Stratford
In Worcester USA in 1852 and in Woonsocket USA in 1855.
Later, when he'd moved to Chicago and was making ambrotypes, he
was overcome by the vapors of potassium cyanide, resulting in paralysis,
which incapacitated him for a long time. He later became a doctor and surgeon.

Hannah Daniels Pond
She was born in Woonsocket, and moved to Worcester after 1855: so the photo was
made when Stratford had his studio in Woonsocket. It might've been made when she was 16.
