Two daguerreotypes in a case, one labelled "Southward Howland" and one, "Polly Ware Howland." The son of Job and Hannah Jenking Howland of Barnstable, Massachusetts, Southworth Howland (1775-1853) married his first wife, Esther Allen (1780-1814), the daughter of Nathan and Persis Allen of West Brookfield, in 1799, and they had seven children. Southworth married his second wife Polly Ware (1785-1870), the daughter of Dr. Samuel and Bertha Avery Ware of Conway, Massachusetts, in 1816, and they had five children. They were purchased by the donor from William W. Howland through his guardian, Rev. C.S. Wilder of Longmeadow in 1926, a year after they had also bought the sampler, portraits of Southworth and Polly Ware Howland (see HD 78.042-78.043), and other Howland family possessions found in an attic in Conway, Massachusetts.
