Mystery photo – Brodhead line?

Greetings, “Chips” Followers;

I hope you’ve been keeping well. Not long ago I received an email (contents below) from Virginia O’Neill, asking for help identifying the couple in an old electrograph. I was unable to help, but offered to post it here so that others could have a chance to weigh in with their opinions. I think the woman looks somewhat like Andrew Jackson Brodhead, but he had no sisters. Perhaps a cousin? Let’s see if we can get this photo identified. Perhaps one of you holds the key!

3//12/18 – Check the comments section below for responses.

I have in my possession an unidentified electrograph/painted tintype portrait of a man and woman side-by-side. It is decoratively matted, and framed in dark wood. Its overall size is 14″x12.” SEE: attached photo.

Unfortunately, it was given to me without any provenance. I am writing to inquire if you are familiar with this portrait and if the subjects could be BRODHEAD ancestors on my father’s maternal line. My father is Richard Brodhead ARNOLD, grandson of Richard Henry BRODHEAD, youngest son of Andrew Jackson BRODHEAD and Ophelia EASTON.

I have compared photographs of Garret BRODHEAD (1793-1872) and wife Cornelia DINGMAN (1797-1885) SEE: your post of 5 May 2014 “Brodhead family descendants repair Cornelia D. Brodhead headstone.”

I have also compared the photographs of Andrew and Ophelia as a young couple from the personal family collection of James & Barbara BRODHEAD. SEE: your post of 1 January 2016 “A Brodhead family New Year’s Eve wedding 170 years ago.”

I would appreciate any help you might provide identifying the portrait.

  2. Chips Readers, Ruth Bush has referred us to a photo of the sons of Luke Brodhead & Elizabeth Wills. You can see the image here: http://www.monroehistorical.org/articles_files/010108_brodhead.html

    Luke Brodhead 1777-1845, married Elizabeth Wills 1789-1879
    1. Elizabeth 1812
    2. William Alexander 1814-1880 – owned Kittatiny Hotel
    3.Thomas 1816-1902 – ran Brainerd House
    4.Theodore 1818-1868, murdered, married Celeste Howe 1834-1951
    5. Lewis 1819
    6. Luke Wills 1821-1902 – ran the Water Gap House, married Margaret ____
    7. Horace Binney 1825 – ran Kittatiny Boat Tour
    8. Benjamin Franklin 1831-1912 – ran Brodhead Cottages

    These fellows look older than the man in the electrograph so it’s hard to say who it is he most resembles. DeWitt?
