I have a ca 1880 photo album that belonged to the Robert J. Park Family. From what I have been able to find he was born ca 1834 in Scotland and came to the U. S. before 1870. He is found on both the 1870 and 1880 Census of Madison, Dane Co. WI. By 1900 he is in Milwaukee City. From the census data he was and was a house carpenter. His wife Ellen or Hellen was also born in Scotland ca 1834. Her maidenhood name may have been Rae. Their known Children: (1) Willie Park b. ca 1864 WI, (2) Maggie Park b. ca 1866 WI, (3) Nellie Park b. ca 1867 WI, (4) George Park b. ca 1869 WI, (5) James Park b. ca 1872 WI, and Ann Park b. ca 1874 WI. There are several photos of Robert, Ellen, Maggie and some young children.

On the 1870 Federal Census of Madison, Ward 2, Dane Co. WI Robert and family are living near W. J. Park b. ca 1833 Scotland who was a merchant. His wife Maggie was also born in Scotland ca 1839. Their Children: Allen G. b. ca 1861 WI, Bennie b. ca 1865 WI, and Bessie b. ca 1869. There is one photo of W. J. Park and two unidentified Women.

There are also photos of some Rae Family members. One is a group shot of John & Eliza Allen Rae and children. They are found on the 1881 Census of Oldbury, Worcester, England living at 72 Birm Road. John Rae was born ca 1844 in Scotland and his wife Eliza ca 1845 in Scotland. Robert Rae b. ca 1869 in Worcester but is not a son. His relationship is marked other. Son Theodore b. ca 1870 Worcester, son Alfred Gavin b. ca 1874 Worcester, Dau. Lillian Eliza b. ca 1876 Worcester, son J. George b. ca 1879 Worcester.

I am willing to share electronic copies with any family members.
