Cox family tree
Top 2 photos are tin types ; third photo is cabinet card which was loose in this album. Jeanne Landis Illian helped identify these in Feb 2000. The girl (Louise) was born 1884, the boy (William) 1887. Thus, the top photos date is about 1892 ; bottom photo dates about 1888. Alternate photo of Louise

One of the two copies of this photo is hand-labeled "Alice Louise Cox", and the other is hand-labeled "Mrs. J.W. Landis, Hinsdale, Ill". Both prints are machine-labeled "1878, Chicago, Illinois", at which point Alice would have been 21 years old. Leslie Belais, clothing specialist at the Wisconsin Historical Society in Madison, thinks this child's outfit dates from the 1880's, suggesting that the dedications on the photos name the owner rather than the girl in the picture. In this case, the pictured girl is Alice's daughter Louise, born 1884. Jeanne (landis) Illian, in February 2000, compared this photo with photo above, showing Alice Cox with a similar child, who would be her daughter. See a second picture of Louise from the same day?
