C. Reed and M. A. Reed
Written on the back of the man's photo was C. Reed at 67, 1887. (Antique Photograph Album, image #10.)
The next photograph in the album was of a woman identified as M.A. Reed at 58, 1887 (Antique Photograph Album, image #11).
We assume C. and M.A. Reed were husband and wife, although no proof exists. Both photos were taken at 632 Kansas Ave., in Topeka, Kansas and the photographer was Snyder. They were friends of the Curtis family but no other information is known about them. We have no evidence that any of the Curtis family ever lived in Kansas, so we assume the Reed's lived there prior to their friendship with the Curtis family. The location where the Curtis and Reed families met is unknown, but we assume it was possibly in Utah, Idaho, or maybe Montana. The photographer for both pictures was T. B. Cardon, located in Logan, Utah.
