A while back, a kind person was trying to track down the relatives for a photograph that she had. She found me through RootsWeb Connect. She had a photo for a Mrs. Robert Comfort and wanted to return it to the rightful owners.
|Mrs. Robert Comfort|
Photographer: E. Poole studio in St. Catharines
This woman looks so beautiful but here’s the trouble. There are so MANY Robert Comforts in St. Catharine’s, Ontario Canada. It’s VERY difficult trying to figure out just who this person might be. Additionally, other than gravestones, this is the only Comfort family photo I have. So sad. I know there are Comfort Family researchers doing work on the same line as me, but I can’t seem to track them down.
So, Mrs. Robert Comfort has remained a mystery to me for over 7 years. The only additional information I have received is this:
Mr. Poole retired from the photo business in 1921. So the photo is pre-1921.
