This beautiful lady is one of our mystery Streeter family members. We saw her previously in this post, in which I wondered if she wasn’t all that happy. After researching the entire family, I am speculating that this is Alice Fullington Streeter, wife of Charles Streeter. I came to this conclusion after studying the family tree, and also after studying the faces of those pictured in these cabinet cards.
One, the family consisted of siblings Charles, Alfred, Abbie, Eva, and Arthur. Alfred, Abbie and Arthur have been identified. Eva shows up on one and only one census, so I concluded that she passed away as a child. That left Charles. I studied his face and it appears to have some family resemblance to the three identified siblings. Interestingly, Charles outlived his wife Alice and even remarried in the 1900s. And yet, if I’m correct in my detective work, the previous portrait featuring this woman and who I think to be Charles specifically indicated on the back that a bust portrait would be made of Charles only. I would have thought that the deceased wife might be the one featured in a large portrait? Maybe they used this as a companion piece to that one? This is a very beautiful likeness, who ever she is.
It’s all a guessing game, but I do wonder if this is Alice.
