I have an old photograph taken by the Keely Studio on the N.W. corner of Fifth and Coates Streets, Philadelphia. Handwritten on the back is "W. Holmes". There is a canceled Internal Revenue stamp for 2 cents. This tells me the photograph was taken/sold between August 1864 and August 1866 and that it cost less than 25 cents. Can anyone help me in identifying for sure and/or help with the photographer.

I have a William HOLMES who I think was born abt. 1827 and he is the younger (I think) brother of my 2nd great grandfather, Charles Henry Holmes. I am guessing that this is a photograph of him. He was a son of William Holmes (immigrated from England 1818) and Maria Dodge.

Thanks. Tom.

I have a Holmes in my line:

6] William Ellsworth Holmes, was born September 27, 1836. He married Frances Down Bassett, daughter of Dr. Phillip Bassett, on January 9, 1866.

I have more information about him if he is one of yours.
