About This Image
This albumen print (CDV format) was made from a daguerreotype, dated ca. 1850. Herman Greene was the child of Nathan Greene and Susan Alford. Nathan was amongst the earliest settlers in the town of St. Albans, Vermont, where he settled in 1786. On September 13, 1792, his child, Herman, was born.
Herman (as is written on the back of the mount) was the first male"white child" born in St. Albans. There were only two single females in the town when his father settled there, and one of these was an Indian Squaw. Based on this portrait, Herman went on to become a steamboat officer. Photograph is accompanied by a page copied from a Vermont history book from 1891, which includes the above information.
Photographer name and location printed on mount.
