Catharine & John Calvin Port

Here is a charming picture of Catharine Hoover Port with her oldest child John Calvin Port. It was taken in Davenport around 1866. Catharine would have been about 29 years of age and John would have been about 7 years of age. It is unfortunate that I do not have any pictures of Isaac Port in his younger days.

Annie Port

Another delightful picture shows Isaac & Catharine Port's daughter Annie. It was probably taken about the same time as the one above. Annie would have been about 2 years of age. Even in the last century it would seem children were not fond of sitting still while their pictures were taken!
