Ebay auction: Daguerreotype of Elizabeth D. Brodhead (1851-1938) as a child & one of her father, too

THE KINGSTON DAILY FREEMAN. TUESDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 5, 1916. (Credit: FultonHistory.com)

Just a quick post to say that a daguerreotype of Elizabeth Dorcas Brodhead is up for auction on eBay. To view the item, click here.  Shown here as a child, she went on to marry Philetus Kortright (1846-1916). She was the daughter of Richard Brodhead (1815-1865) and Eliza Maria Jansen Brodhead (1823-1908); see Find a Grave: https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/19501036

A search of Ancestry trees shows that this Richard Brodhead appears to have been the the son of Oliver C. Brodhead (1774-1858) and Dorcas Hallock (1787-1853). Oliver was a grandson of Daniel Brodhead (1693-1755) and Hester Wyngart (1687-1758) via their son Revolutionary War captain Charles W. Brodhead (1729-1789). (I am, as are some of you, a direct descendant of Charles’s brother Garret Brodhead.)

Just wanted to pass this auction info along in case some Brodheads out there who read this blog and are closely related to Elizabeth would be interested in trying to acquire this unique and precious item.

Oops! After posting this, I noticed a daguerreotype of Richard is up for auction, too. Click here.

  1. Oh, how I’d love to find something like this relating to my family! I hope your post leads someone to their own ancestor.

  2. Also, I’m curious how you came across this. Have you set up Ebay alerts for family names in general or specifically for photographic images, or some other kind of search? Thanks!

    • No, I just do a weekly search on eBay of any new items related to the Brodhead surname. You can sort items by various criteria — newest, most expensive, etc. But you can set alerts on eBay if you want to. (I should probably do that, now that I think of it!!! 🙂 )

      • I envy you having a less common surname to search. Most of my 8 gr grandparent surnames are all pretty common (3 in the top 50 most common), so surname searches can be pretty useless.

      • That is lucky with Brodhead. But, I do know what you mean actually. I’ve got common names too, although they are farther back than my grandparents’ surnames. Every time I search for “Angus” I get a lot of things related to Angus cattle.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
