I have good news for researchers of the Maltbie family.
Your family's antique photograph album has been located!

I am Robert D. King and in my travels, I see family photos lost in antique stores and for sale on ebay. I think that is sad knowing that there are family tree researchers and descendants, that would treasure those photos. So I have decided to try and do something about it by returning as many as I can to their rightful families.

So I buy photos with names and dates or places on them and list them on my webpage, so descendants of these lost souls can find them and bring them home. The thousands of photographs are mostly from the 1800's and include Tintypes, Daguerreotypes, Cabinet Cards, Carte-de-visites, Personal Picture Postcards, Photo Albums and Yearbooks.

Recently, I was able to acquire the following album:

Wolcott Maltbie Families Photo Album from Ohio

This ( 8 x 11 x 2.5 inches) album has a red fabric covering with a white rose on the cover.
It features 63 portraits and 6 of them are tintypes and at least one has a Civil War stamp.
There are four antique greeting cards from friends and family.

This unique album has pages of single cabinet cards, pages of 4 carte-de-vistas
per page and similar pages cut to accommodate double cabinet cards.
The amazing thing is the almost without exception the names
in the album are duplicated on the backs of the photos.

The names in the album are:

Harold C. Wolcott ---- Newton Falls, Ohio
Orvis Orlando Wolcott --- Wedding picture ------ Warren, Ohio
Carrie Maria Maltbie --- Wedding picture ------ Garrettsville, Ohio
