[Add A Photo]
Photo, presumed to be Magruder Barrett , due to age of the man and family. It is detail from photo 004 carte de visite; unmarked as to identity. It bears the "Huddleston" imprint, but the photo is carte de visite size rather than a cabinet photo, and appears to be original (i.e., not a copy of an earlier photo). It therefore is probably an earlier photo than the Huddleston cabinet cards of the Robert L. and Mattie Bond family (1891), but not so early as to have tax stamps (Civil War years); it is like circa 1870-1880. The gentleman appears to be about 65 years old, so to identify, we need a close member of the Bond family born 1805-1815 and who was still alive 1870-1880. The patriarch, William Bond, died in 1863, so it is not him. Mattie (Ramey) Bond's parents died in 1824. But she was raised by Magruder Barrett (1811 - 1882). His age and longevity make him the likely candidate for this photo. from the Kentucky family collection ,courtesy of L.S.Pierce.
