Family Photographs - Post 6: Thomas Richmond Family

I'm posting old family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be wordless posts like others do - I simply cannot have a wordless post.

Here is one of the oldest images from my Richmond family collection:

The people in this photograph are (left to right):
* Charles Percival Richmond (standing, 1880-1910)
* Everett Glens Richmond (seated, 1875-1917)
* Alma Bess Richmond (seated on Edwin's lap, 1882-1962)
* Julia (White) Richmond (seated, 1848-1912)
* James Henry Richmond (seated on Julia's lap, 1885-1913)
* Thomas Richmond (seated, 1848-1917)
* Edwin Thomas Richmond (seated on Thomas' lap, 1883-1935)
* Emily White Richmond (seated, 1879-1966)
* Grace L. Richmond (seated, 1876-1963)
The oldest daughter, Anne Frances Richmond (1869-1939) was not in the picture.
This Richmond family photograph was probably taken on the Richmond farm in Putnam, Windham County, Connecticut. It was probably taken in 1886 or 1887 (since James, the youngest, was still in a "dress"). The photographer is unknown.
Alma Bess (Richmond) Seaver is my grandmother, and Thomas and Julia (White) Richmond are my great-grandparents.
This photograph is in the possession of Randy Seaver, and was obtained from the Seaver family photograph collection handed down by his parents.
