Ann (Schenck) Ditmas photo

In a flea market last week, I found an old photo of 4 generations of women. Further research indicates that they were from Flatbush, Brooklyn, NY. Their names and info I've found about them:

- Ann (Schenck) Ditmas, b. 9/16/1799 (she was the wife of Henry S. Ditmas, who owned the old Ditmas homestead in Flatbush)

- Jane Ann (Ditmas) Martense, her daughter, b. 1820, wife of Gerret Martense

- Jennie V. (Martense) Wilbur, her grand-daughter, b. February 1846, wife of Lionel Wilbur

- Anna M. Wilbur, her great grand-daughter, b. August 1875.

This photo dates from the 1880's, based on the ages of the women, my best guess is around 1885 or so. If anyone is related to any of these women, contact me and I will send a scan of the photo, which is one of those photos of cardboard thickness. I think they're called cabinet photos.
