These two matching framed photographs are quite a rare find! One is of a man named Captain George Dawson (1790-1832), and the other photograph is of his wife, Anna Maria Robertson (1794-1852). What makes these photos unique, is that they have the original inscriptions, which someone wrote in the 1800's, on the back. They are as follows:
"George Dawson. Born May 24th, 1760. Married Anna Maria Robertson, Dec. 25th 1794. Died June 4th 1832."
"Anna Maria Robertson of Scotland, daughter of John and Ann Robertson. Born. Married December 25th 1794 to Captain George Dawson of the British Legion. Died June 23rd, 1852. Philadelphia."
