I wanted to share this family photo of Grace Pocock with the community. She was the second wife of my third great grandfather, Elijah Pocock Sr. It was among the possessions of her great grand daughter Lottie Whitney Covil at the time of her death in 1973.

Location: Ohio. Date: Before 1866.

Very interesting picture. Do you have an idea of what year it may have been? Her hair covering and dress is very interesting also! Thank you for sharing!

I don't have an exact date but I would surmise it would be sometime between 1830 and 1850. If you go to her profile and click on her husband, my 3rd great grandfather, Elijah Pocock, you will see his photo which is classic.
Not being able to see the bodice neckline/shape, it's probably late1850's - mid1860's judging from the shape of the sleeves and the fitting darts on the front of the bodice.  Her hair is parted in the center and pulled into a bun at the back of her head which was a very common style in that time.
