Local BizFeed

Our favorite local businesses love keeping in touch with us and we love to keep in touch them too. But even with social media these days you have to visit each of your favorite places separately to see what’s going on. Since most social media platforms don’t show a businesses posts to everyone, you’re missing news from our local establishments.

As part of our ad network program, when we shop Freeport, we look to these fine local places first. BizFeed updates instantly so you’re sure to never miss anything from your favorite local places.

Catching up on some accessioning we came across this tintype donated by our good friend and volunteer Grace Wagner. The photograph was taken at Cottage Studio in Freeport August 15, 1893. The young ladies are in their late teens. Don’t they look like they are out having a great day together. The ladies are Jennie Galloway of Freeport, Il., Edria Lucinda Taggart of St. Louis, MO. and Leila Aques Brown of Canon City, Co.
Jennie Galloway was the daughter of Joseph N. Galloway who was a soda maker here in Freeport. We have several of his bottles in our collection. The bottle in the photos is a blob top that was made around the same time the photograph was taken.
Thank you Grace for donating this really neat tintype and thanks for looking up the information about these women. Here’s some of the information Grace found for me.

Leila Agnes Brown Whalen (1874-1932). Her parents were Josiah Edwin Brown (1845-1918) and
Emma B. (1849-?). Her siblings were Mattie Brown Bradley (1872-?) and Alice (1876-?). Josiah
Brown was a Book Maker. Leila married Richard Whalen (1858-1938) in 1897 in Canon City,
Colorado and had a son named Carroll (1899-1985). In 1900, they lived in Detroit and Richard
was an Insurance Salesman. In 1910, Leila is divorced from Richard and living in Canon City as a
Dressmaker with her Aunt Sarah McGee (1835-?) and son Franklin (1905-?). In 1920, Leila is in
Huntington Park, CA and is still a Seamstress with her son Raymond (1904-1977) who is a
Broom Factory Apprentice and Franklin who doesn’t have a job. In 1910, Carroll and Raymond
lived with their maternal grandparents in Fruitmere, CO. In 1930, Raymond was married to
Lillian (1904-?) and they had Edward (1924-1940s). Raymond was an Ice Wagon Driver in 1930
and a Beater Man in 1940. Edward was a Salesman in 1940. He died in WW2 but his body was
never recovered. Franklin lived in San Antonio, CA in 1930. He worked as a Rubber Factory Test-
Car Driver. He was married to Eva (1908-1933) and they had Dorothy Jane (1925-2003), Frank
Jr. (1927-2014), and Margaret (1928-2010).

Jennie Galloway (1875-?). Her parents were Joseph N. Galloway (1837-1922) and Mary I. Snyder
(1840-?). Joseph was a Soda Water Maker. Ida (1865-?) was her sister. They lived in Freeport in
