Hodgson / Redford Family Images


Do the photos above show Emma/Emily Redford Hodgson, her husband William and son Edward? The 1900 Census lists William as a farmer in California - dressed in a suit? Are the two men the same as in the Templeton depot photo at the bottom of this page?



Above center photo has a copy of a photograph hung on the wall behind the woman; the photo to the right is the 1890 Town of Lisbon Supervisors party in the Thomas Weaver grove. The pictures look to be the same, possible indicating that the picture with the woman is in a Town of Lisbon home, Thomas S. Redford's? Though Thomas isn't listed as a Town Supervisor in the 1890 photo.
