Scope and content
The fonds consists of primary and secondary source information regarding the Taber family, including the East Farnham's families of: Joseph Taber (1806-1873) and Deborah P. Hoskins (1808-1888), and Rev. Curtis Phelps Taber (1837-1925) and Ruth England (1836-1922). There are also information about Georgia Taber Muirhead (1873-1921) and Mary Taber McCutcheon (1900-1983). The photographs concern East Farnham families, including Charles Taber, Curtis Phelps Taber and his grand-son Curtis Penn Taber, and Joseph Taber and his wife Deborah Hoskins and their children. The photo album probably belonged to Eli Hoskins Taber's family (1842-1878), who became a famous photographer, along with his older brother Abner Bedee Taber (1832-1866), even though their career ended too soon.
