Notes
It is believed that this photograph shows the children of Christian Eby (1842-1920), namely Lydia Anne (b. 1868) and Isaac (b.1881). However, given the age span between the children, it is unlikely that this is Lydia Ann and Isaac. If this is Lydia Ann, it is possible that the young boy is James Edward (b. 1870). Daniel G. Dennison was a photographer in Berlin, Ontario from 1865-1885.
