I have two original Cabinet Card photos (Horace Meech and Jane Meech) which I would like to get back to family members. Photos were taken in Chicago about 1895 (+or- a few years), and show Horace about age 55 and Jane about age 50.

I found Horace and wife Lucy Jane, in Chicago census of 1880, each age 44, and his occupation was “tea store”. LDS AF shows Horace Meech, born abt 1827, lived Chicago, IL, married 5 Jun 1856 to Lucy Jane Tucker, daughter of Erastus Tucker and Mary Gates Tucker. In 1900, their birthdates were: Horace Nov 1831 and Lucy Jane Jul 1831. Children were George, ae 39 & J. Maude, 38. In the 1910 census for Chicago, Horace was age 78, born Massachusetts, with daughter Julia M., age 40.

If Horace and Jane (Tucker) Meech are in your family, email me at
