1 Rose Moore Rose More

Same person as #48, only much older-probably a friend of Mary Hyndman.

"Rosa Moore:The only one by this name I can find was a daughter of Joseph C. & Elizabeth J. Moore of Upper Chunk. She died in 1938 at age 88 years and was never married. This Moore family lived in Upper Chunk among the Scotch-Irish families, but there doesn't seem to be a close connection. Joseph was born in Pa. in 1826, as were both his parents, according to the census entries. But it is also interesting to note that his next door neighbor was John & Selena (Bell) Moore, both natives of N. Ireland." (Jack Sterling)

This must be the same Rose Moore. If she died at 88 in 1938, her birth year was c. 1850. Mary Hyndman was born 14 Sep 1848 (who I assume was her friend for they appear to have been photographed at the same time with the same backdrop - photos #48 & #49). Bill Auld says that Rose was born in 1849 - in the Liberties (he thought) and was a school teacher by 1870. Upper Mauch Chunk makes more sense for that is where Mary Hyndman's parents had property. The Connellsville photographer of the older portrait [this portrait] is interesting. Connellsville is in the southwestern part of Pennsylvania. E. K. Hyndman (son of Hugh and Catherine Huff [Hoff] Hyndman and cousin of Mary Hyndman) had interest in a coke and iron company in Connellsville (along with John Leisenring). But as far as I know, E. K. lived in Pittsburgh. A book on Pennsylvania 19th century photographers states that photographer Byron Porter was active in 1890-91 in Connellsville, making her about 40 in this photo.

Autographed J. Aspinwall Hodge.

"J. Aspinwall Hodge was the Mauch Chunk Presbyterian minister who followed Rev. Richard Webster. He left Mauch Chunk around 1864 or 65." (Jack Sterling)
The stamp on the back of Hodge's photo dates it from Aug 1864 to Aug 1866 (the stamp was a war tax in force during that time period). John Aspinwall Hodge died in 1901 at age 70. His obituary from the New York Times.

16 Mat Harrison Lines Martha Lyons "Mat" could be Mar." Mat. Harrison Lines (or Lyons). There was a James Milton Line, 1849 to 1931 who lived in Mauch Chunk (son of Samuel & Elizabeth Line). About 1873 James M. married a woman named Martha (maiden name not known right now), 1846 to 1927. Their 2nd child was Harry M. Line, born 1878, died 1973. I had thought the M. in his name stood for "Milton", same as his father's middle name. But maybe it stood for "Mathew". The "Martha Lyons" you have in the Index column fits in as his mother. This was an Upper Chunk family, James Milton Line appears in the 1850 through 1930 censuses. Harry M. only appears in 1880 and 1900, after that he was gone from Chunk. He was a railroad pay clerk in 1900, the type of job which may have led him elsewhere. (Jack Sterling) carte-de-visite   James Zelner, Mauch Chunk, PA.

18 Annie Porter Mrs. Annie P. Swank

On verso: " Annie Porter Barker" perhaps "Barkin" or "Rankin." Annie Parker, indexed under Mrs. Annie P. Swank: Is the caption clearly written? Is this Annie Porter who married Josiah Swank? She was a daughter of Robert & Ann (Andrews) Porter. I know little of this branch of the Swank family beyond the fact they had left Mauch Chunk in the 1860s. In 1880 they were in Delano, Schuylkill Co. (about 20 miles from Chunk) and at that time they had four children, including a daughter, Annie, age 4. So, another possibility here is that Annie Parker was this daughter, and she married a Porter. There was also the wife of James W. Swank (brother of Charles W.), whose name I don't know but I do know she died before James did. They lived in Washington, DC where James worked for the US Treasury for 48 years. Maybe he was the "Lawyer Swank" mentioned. (Jack Sterling).

No doubt that this is Annie Porter. On the reverse is written: "Annie Porter Barkin (at least it looks like Barkin, but I am not sure). "Barkin" is on a line below Annie Porter, so may or may not be part of her name. James Andrews came to Carbon Co. in 1847 where his daughter Ann had settled with her husband Robert Porter. The Porters were married in Ireland. James Andrews brought other children with him: Nancy, who married John Wisley; Jane married James Kennedy (son of Samuel Kennedy and Jenny Blair) in 1848 in Mauch Chunk; and Margaret who married Charles Swank. I would suppose that this Annie Porter is the daughter of Ann Andrews and Robert Porter and that Jim Swank (#19) is the son of Charles and Margaret Swank. James Andrews with his 3 sons left Mauch Chunk ending up in Australia. Nancy Wisley followed him there after her husband disappeared and was assumed dead. (Elaine McCutcheon). The Kennedys and the Hyndmans were cousins. As to the "Barkin" written on the verso, perhaps it is "Beckie"? (Rebecca Hyndman, that is to say her copy of the photo.)

22 unidentified young child   "Baby Hodge" on reverse. Child of J. Aspinwall Hodge? (#5) J. Aspinwall Hodge had four known sons and no known daughters; so if this is a child of his, it could be a son since male children were often put in dresses and allowed to have their hair grow long. His son, J. Aspinwall Jr. was born 9 March 1861. (reference) carte-de-visite   J. Brown, Mauch Chunk, P.A.

28 Maggie Hutchinson Shefler Maggie Hutchinson Shefler Perhaps "Shafler". On the reverse: "Your Loving Maggie, Sept. 14. '74" Eleanor (last name unknown, Sunrise0460@cs.com) has been researching the Hutchinsons of Mauch Chuck.
In reference to Maggie Hutchinson Shefler, she states that a John Shaffer (b.1857) married in 1886 Jane Hutchinson (b. 1865). They were Mauch Chunkers and Maggie may have been a sister to Jane and had married John's brother (my conjecture). She has a Margaret Ann Hutchinson, born 1856, which would fit right in with this photo which is dated 1874. Obviously more research is needed here.

32 Belle Bennett Isabelle Bennett

Isabelle "Belle" Bennett, born 1839, died 1923.

"She was the wife of Civil War hero Alonzo Bennett and the daughter of John Bayne and Catherine Hoff. John Bayne died in 1842, leaving a widow and four children, all daughters. A little over a year after John's death Catherine married Hugh Hyndman. Isabelle Bayne was only four years old when this happened, so Hugh was the only father she knew." [Jack Sterling]

Belle's husband Alonzo was wounded and lost his left arm at the Battle of Chancellorsville in 1863. He died in 1867 when Isabelle was 27 and pregnant with their daughter Rebecca. Their son Eugene was declared insane and committed to a state hospital in Danville, Pa. More about Alonzo.

33 Annie Fleming Major Annie Fleming Major

Annie Flemming Major: This was the wife of Thomas Major and a daughter of Charles & Margaret (Andrews) Swank. The question is, though, was she really a daughter of Charles, or a step daughter. She appears as Annie Swank in the 1860 census, age four. But in the 1870 Mauch Chunk census, first child listed after the parents is "Flemming, Anna K.", age 14. She is followed by "Swank, Philip" and the rest of the Swank children. Going by this, Anna's last name wasn't Swank, but Flemming. So, was she a Flemming or a Swank? (Jack Sterling).

She was born c 1856, the daughter of Margaret Weir Andrews & her first husband possibly Samuel Fleming. In 1859 Margaret married Charles Swank & apparently Charles thought of Annie as his own child, although he & Margaret had a large family.
Annie married twice. Her first husband was Thomas Major & there were two children from this marriage - Margaret b 1877 & William b 1879. Her second husband was Luther Birdsall.
Margaret Weir Andrews was the youngest daughter of James Andrews & Jane Rankin & was born in Ireland Feb. 06, 1840. Her sisters were Jane Kennedy, Ann Porter & Nancy Wisely.
About Jim Swank. The only one that I have listed is a brother of Charles. They were the sons of Philip Swank & Amelia Snyder who lived at Mauch Chunk. James W. Swank was born Aug.23, 1835 Mauch Chunk & died Aug. 17, 1921, Washington D.C. He married Julia Boyer & had a family of 6 children - no James. He worked as a clerk for US Treasury Dept. in Washington & went by the initials J. W. (Elaine McCutcheon of Australia).

Anna K. Fleming was the daughter of Margaret Andrews Fleming Swank. Her husband, I believe, was Samuel Fleming. The Flemings were lived several houses away from the James Andrews home.
Anna, born in 1856 was surely accepted by Charles W. Swank, husband of her mother, Margaret. He remembered her in his will. When Anna married Thomas Major, he was working on the railroad in Mauch Chunk. They had one daughter. In 1890 they moved to Seattle where a half sister, Olive Swank Kiefer lived. Her husband was an attorney, who had practiced in Mauch Chunk and was awarded his law certificate in that same city. They also had a son. Thomas Major apparently died. She remarried and moved with her husband to San Francisco. (Chris Matthew <matthewlindy@mchsi.com>)
