Tintype of Mary Flanagan

Two very early tintype photographs that we believe are of Mary Jane McKinley (January 1, 1862 - November 29, 1961) and of Liberty K. Flanagan (September 16, 1858 - November 18, 1932). She was just 17 when they were married.

Tintype of Liberty Flanagan

Liberty K. Flanagan and Mary Jane McKinley were married February 22, 1879, in Unionville, Putnam Co., MO. Liberty's father, Bryant Flanagan died during the Civil War at Pittsburg Landing, Tennessee, early in the battle of Shiloh. He left behind a young wife with three sons to raise. Liberty's younger brothers, Meritt and Union, moved on to Montana with their uncle, William Flanagan.

And on the right is one of his son, Dana C. Flanagan.
The initials in their names, the "K" and the "C" didn't stand for anything. The initials themselves were all the middle names that they had.
