William may perhaps be the older generation to D.W. Webster who gifted the red photo album either to his sister or a future wife. The red photo album will be a future post.
You can age this man in the red photo album. He may have been at school when he had this taken as he ends up having all the rest of his photos taken in Osceola, Iowa.
Unfortunately there is no name on this guy's photo. He may actually be the a son of the owner of this album. If the owner of the album Callie Alexander. I did find a calling card with the name of Callie Webster in the older album. She could have been this Callie's mother.
As he ages I can see the resemblance to an older photo of a William C. Webster. That photo is an older generation of family so it could be his grandfather that he looks like. I will show that comparison later.
Amendment number 1. Christine is correct, this guy has an attached earlobe. I don't know my genetics so I don't know if the father can have attached earlobes and his offspring cannot. I await the authorities out there who know the answer. I will have to look at the other relatives in this book to see if there are more like him.
Just as a shot in the dark, this guy may be his younger photo. I have no proof but I thought it would show you how mysterious this album proves to be. I know it looks like a girl with the dress but I think it must be a boy with the way the hair is combed.
This is the sneak peak of the older album that I have. I found some interesting calling cards in here that tie to the Webster's family and to a diary with Jackson and Hill written by Mrs. Jackson.
I have bits and pieces as I continue on. My wife paints portraits and she is good at identifying facial features. I intend to lay out all of the photos of this green album on the table and let her connect the family tree.
