red mail Grenadier Guard Photo taken in Southsea
I have a photo of a young man taken by C. Biskeborn, Photographic Artist, 9 Landport Terrace, Southsea. The photo was in my ggg-grandmother Sophia Spiller Smith Sutton's album which she brought with her from Devon, England, to the United States about 1877. Unfortunately, there is nothing to identify the man in the photo. So far, I've not found any information on the photographer that could pinpoint the timeframe in which the photo was taken. I have been lucky enough to find that the uniform he is wearing is that of a Grenadier Guard. Does anyone have any information that might help? I suspect the man may be a member of either a Smith, Sutton, Way, or Spiller family from Devon. The families lived in Exeter, Ottery St. Mary, and Colaton Raleigh. One family, John Way and Charlotte Smith Way, lived in London briefly before immigrating to the USA in April 1866.
