Outstanding photo grouping attributed to the Tobey family of Illinois. In total there are 7 daguerreotypes, 3 ambrotypes, 1 tintype, 1 tobacco card, 2 albumens and 2 hymn pocket bibles. Ninth plate tintype of Henry. He would muster with Company D of the 75th Illinois Volunteer Infantry during the first week of September, 1862. Later that month he would be hospitalized in Perryville and Louisville, Kentucky with disease of the throat and lungs due to exposure. Following his recovery he would be detailed as a nurse in Louisville up until November, 1863 when he was relieved and returned to his regiment. May and June of 1864 would see him sick in the hospital once again. Henry would muster out with his regiment in June, 1865. Henry is shown here dressed in his uniform and sporting a niffty little neck tie. A period inscription is written inside the case reading “Henry Tobey, 1862, 20 yrs. old, 75th Ill. Vols. Co. D”. The remainder of these images are relatives to Henry. Most are accompanied by period id’s inside the cases. There 15 images in total. These do come with a small amount of genealogical research and Henry’s service records. Great grouping of images!
