The second image is of his wife, the next image is of William T. Cunningham, who later was a captain with the 40th Ohio Infantry, and the other uniformed soldier is Thomas McGuire, who was married to Mrs. Remley's sister. McGuire served in the 163rd under his brother-in-law and died near the end of the war of dysentary. All the remaining photos are of Civil War period and all from Ohio. Remley was from Mansfield, Ohio, and other towns represented are Ashland, Wooster and several from Cincinnati.

Surnames: Remley, McCrim, Cunningham, Broadwell, Rider, Traylor, Igasham?, Hopkins, Mason, Haines

Types of Early Photographs

The type of photograph in an album helps to date the album

Daguerreotypes (ca 1839)

Photography in USA began circa 1839 but not many are found before 1854.

Ambrotypes (circa 1854)

The ambrotype was a glass negative backed with black material so it appeared as a positive image

Tintypes (ca 1855)

The Ferrotype process (tintypes) was introduced in the United States in 1855. It substituted an iron plate for glass and is one of a kind. No copies could be made from a tintype.

Carte de Visite or CDVs (ca 1859)

CDV stands for carte de visite. CDVs replaced ambrotypes, producing a card 2.5 by 4" CDVs arrived in the United States around 1859, on the eve of the Civil War (1861-1865). On June 30, 1864 a tax on photographs, ambrotypes, daguerreotypes and other "sun-pictures" went into effect. Tax Revenue Stamps had to be placed on the backs of photographs from that date (1864) until August 1, 1866. This helps date CDVs taken in this time period.

Cabinet Cards (circa 1870)

CDV’s were replaced in the 1870s by Cabinet Cards which were on a larger 4 by 6" card.
