This week’s photo is of Josephus Lipscomb. The picture is dated circa 1870 and it is believed Josephus was from the Licking District of Tucker County.
I have spent a good amount of time trying to find information of him or his family but I have come up with no results; perhaps someone will have information to share. The photo is a tintype. This method of photograph hit a high mark in the 1860’s and continued until the 1900’s. Tintypes can be found as late as 1950 in some areas. Ideas or comments contact Tim Turner (304) 478-3389.
