Pictures of our Allegheny Ancestors

Recently my Aunt Judy sent me a collection of old photographs she had and included were pictures of many people who are unknown to our family. She said that my great grandfather would purchase these old photographs at auctions.

The photographs were taken by a professional photographer, perhaps for the graduating class of the college or high school in Fairmont, West Virginia. We are investigating this mystery further. On the backs of the photographs are a number (perhaps frame number), a size, and a surname. There is a purple "C" inside a circle, stamped on each, perhaps a trademark of some sort. Each has "Fairmont SN" and a three digit number written on the back. Following is a list of some of the surnames. Perhaps you can identify an ancestor?

I'll be happy to scan these photos and put them on-line for viewing.
