52 Ancestors: #12 Annie Elizabeth Inlow's Tintype

Annie Inlow Trees, Tintype c. 1869
I feel incredibly lucky to have this old tintype of my 3rd great grandmother.  The picture is an unusual size for the time period; 4x6".  The tintype had been cut down and glued into a scrapbook. A yellowed piece of paper, penned by her daughter, attached to the tintype reads "My Mother, Annie E. Inlow Trees."
Annie Elizabeth Inlow was born June 21, 1849 in Fleming County, Kentucky, to parents Isaac Inlow and Lucinda Bell.  She was the only daughter of a family of four boys. One sister, Mary Emarine, died young.  Her family had moved to Rush County, Indiana by 1860.

On May 4, 1869, at the age of 19, Annie married Cyrus Ebon Trees, a very successful business man from Manilla, Indiana.  They had one daughter, Lavanche Emarine Trees.  I assume Lavanche was named for her two aunts who died young, Lavanche Trees (Cyrus' sister) and Mary Emarine Inlow (Annie's sister).

Annie died January 8, 1876, in Manilla, Rush County, Indiana.  She was just 26 and left behind her six year old daughter.  I don't know how she died; Rush County didn't start to keep death records until 1882.

She was buried at Forest Hill Cemetery in Shelbyville, Indiana.
