Original CDV of a Civil War soldier in uniform. CDV is offered as found, still in its album. Written on the album page below the photo i. Died on way to Calif Gold Rush. Obviously he didn't die in the original Gold Rush, since he was in the Civil War...Seems a little shaky, so it could be the poor recollection of an older person who added the note. At one time I had a note that read, "Steven Rowan, died of fever in New Orleans on the way to the Gold Rush", but I lost the note! In addition to be Charlotte's brother, I believe this man was related to W. Find the Walter and Addie's family tree but couldn't find a record of a Steven Rowan anywhere. Anyway, this would be an interesting one to research.. At the very least it's a nice CDV of a Civil War soldier. The CDV is 4" x 2.5" and is in excellent antique condition. Page is 6.5" x 5".
