BABY OSCAR FORKNER

001eThis is another of Aunt Annie’s tintypes.  We believe it is a baby photo of her older son, Oscar, born in the late 1880’s.  It appears that he was sitting on Aunt Annie’s lap as you can see her left hand and one side of her face in the upper right corner.  The tinype was cut so that most of her image was not left in this photo.  The photo was most likely taken at the County seat, Lebanon, Missouri, when they were living on the Forkner farm near Conway Missouri.
