This is Frank Buxton, as identified by the unknown writer. The ink is ballpoint so this is a somewhat recent addition to the photo. How these photos later found themselves for sale on ebay I have no idea. Again, this is a difficult name to search because there were many Frank Buxton’s living in or born in Michigan! Who knew?
The photographer was J. M. Brigham. On this historic map of Planwell dated 1895, I was able to find the plot of land he owned at the corner of Bridge & Prince streets, and on a Google map, there is still a residence located there. Makes you wonder if it was the same house where he had his business. The somewhat long property directly to the left of J. M. Brigham’s home was also owned by a Brigham – a family that has a very long history in America, having come over in 1635!
