Wordless Wednesday: Thomas VanHorn

Thomas A. VanHorn
Thomas was born 4 November 1866 to Chrispin Pierson VanHorn & Maria Rice. He was the second of six children. His older sister, Sarah Jennie, is my great grandmother. Thomas passed on 2 February 1917. Sadly, I know little of him ... so far.


  1. What a unique layout for the photo and photo holder...I don't think I've seen one like that before!

  2. I have a couple like that from the same studio. A quick search on old studios in Philadelphia showed that Ejner Christian Myland's studio was in business from 1890 (maybe earlier - that is the earliest I found record of it) until at least 1930. His son Ejner Chrisian Jr took over at the same address sometime around 1920.
