M. V. Chapman 1878 photographer

M.V. Chapman photography
Moses V. Chapman (born in New York) was one of four photographers in business in Crawfordsville (Ind.) in 1878. Chapman was located "over" 10 East Main Street and resided at Pike and Walnut. In January 1888 Chapman absorbed the Willis Gallery. Prior to entering business in Crawfordsville Chapman was listed as a photographer in Fountain County (Ind.) in the 1870 census with wife Margret, daughter Ella, and son Harry.  Moses V. passed away in August 1905.

Unfortunately these children are unidentified but were taken in the M.V. Chapman studio. The picture was found with other items of the John H. Smith and Noah Fruits families.  If you can identify this photograph or others in the Image Database, please advise the Reference Department at (765) 362-2242 x 117. Thanks.
