CDV is a three-quarter seated view of an unidentified Confederate wearing an 8 or 9 button light-colored shell jacket, open to reveal a plaid vest over a white shirt and light bowtie. His trousers match the shell jacket in color and the subject also wears knee-high boots. In his lap he holds a medium-color slouch hat with both sides of the brim turned up.

Clarity is good but the contrast is light. Paper and mount has scattered surface dirt and stray pencil marks. Mount corners have been clipped.

Reverse is blank but for a period ink inscription that reads “MARY E. NORFLEET, NANSEMOND CO.” There is also some collector information in pencil at the bottom.

Mary E. Norfleet is found in the 1860 census as a resident of Lower Parish, Nansemond County, Virginia. There are 11 soldier’s named Norfleet to be found from the county on the Confederate rolls. They are found in the 5th Virginia Cavalry, 6th & 41st Virginia Infantry.

Image is from the collection of the late William A. Turner.  [ad] [ph:L]
