Subject: Daguerreotype of Joseph Smith and Wife

Just made the discovery about an hour ago.  Uncanny.  I had purchased this from the same estate sale as the bloody bill anderson daguerreotypes in 2020 here in Marshall.  Everything for a reason? Reality stranger than any fiction? Im hoping you are still on board with helping me get these treasures to their proper destinations.  This has got to be worth more money than i can even imagine.  I could use it as  i have been close to broke for a few months now.  

The bowtie style is spot on.  She may very well be wearing the same dress.   
Its far too similar to dismiss.  Fate and Destiny must really like me i dont know.

Hollar at me when you get back from your engagements.

George ohr

There is such a historic presence to george e. Ohr, his life and artwork. For a decade i searched high and low for his work throughout the midwest and i believe i have found and lost a few pieces. I visited and donated to the Biloxi museum am proud to have my name on a brick. In 2015 on a pilgrimage to the south we visited the site where his pottery was. There use to be a semblance of a building but now there was only the tile floor and the outline of the building. Like a miracle at the front step cornerstone i brushed a bit of rock and dust and found a 1900 American cent.
