These two photos (second photo) taken by an unknown photographer circa 1889-1892, are
of my great grandmother, Edna Rachel (Kidder) Ormsby.  She is the daughter of Elmer & Sarah Elvira (Marble) Kidder.  She was born  March 31, 1862 in Riley, McHenry county, IL.  She came with her parents to Bedford in 1875.  There she met & married the boy next door,  Lucien
Ormsby.  In the early years of her marriage she would either stay with relatives & friends or in remote locations with her husband as his business travels took him through several states. They returned to
Bedford and about 1895-1900 they moved to Clayton twp where Lucien went into the farming business.  It is interesting to note the artwork in the second photo.  It appears to have been ordered from the photographer at a later time.  The address on the back would indicate that the photo was
sent after 1907.
