Fry, Annie Nash.

One studio portrait of Annie Nash Fry (wife of Samuel Fry) seen looking at camera. Annie is shown late in life wearing a bonnet which ties at her neck, and glasses. Also includes one print of the identical portrait with a poem. Item may be a funeral card. Identification from verso with birth date as 1819 and death as 1903. Identification is uncertain however, as a print with a poem about the woman identifies the woman as Nancy Fry (possibly familiar form of Anna).

Poem reads:

We meet, in thankfulness to-day,
For blessings showered on our way.
May all our hearts with love abound
As once again we gather round
The heartstone of Aunt Nancy.
Vineland, August 9th, 1905.
