Scope and content

This file consists of a Mills family album, with an inscription inside: "Mother's album. Dave". It was the album of Elizabeth (Betsy) Rea (1834-1865), who was married in Montreal to James Mills Jr (1831-1903). They had three children: David Bloss, James Clawson and Robert Emefer. Many of the photos were quickly identified by David, helping us get acquainted with many relatives.
