Photos from J. B. Silvis of my family (Burton)

From: "Steve Burton"

I found these photos about my family photos. I thought you might like to add them to your website. You can see I have front and back scans.

Lolla Burton was born 1870
Sadie Burton was born 1873 both in Indiana.

This family lived in Elkhorn, Douglas County, Nebraska in 1875. Elkhorn is close to Omaha so I think these photos were taken in Nebraska [by photographer J. B. Silvis, the Union Pacific's nomadic photographer, in his photo rail car].

Any comments will be welcome.

Hi Steve,
There is a site that could be interested in your photographs. The site created by Alan Griffiths deserves the support of anybody interested in any way in photography and photographers. As yet Alan does not have any photographs taken by John B Silvis on his site. It is at
With Kind Regards,
