Louisa Craig Vickery, Unity, ca. 1855

Contributed by Maine Historical Society

A daguerreotype of Louisa Craig Vickery, the wife of Albert Vickery of Unity was made about 1855.

Louisa Craig and Albert Vickery (1831-1858) were married sometime after 1850. Louisa died shortly thereafter of consumption (tuberculosis) and Albert died of the same disease in 1858.

Louisa's sister Luania was married to Albert's older brother David.

The daguerreotype case, known as a "Union" case, was made by A. P. Critchlow & Co. of Florence, Massachusetts, and is of an early type of plastic. Critchlow made the cases from 1853 to 1858.
