David L Evans and his brother Richard pose for a  photographer located in Youngstown Ohio. I can not make out the photographers name. It may be Peck. The brothers are dressed fashionably for this portrait. The older brother seems affectionate and protective toward his sibling. Note the boys ears. The ears are unusually shaped.The 1880 census finds an Evans family in Youngstown with sons named David (age 2) and Richard (age 6 months). It is important to point out that the David in the census and the David in this photograph have different middle initials. However, it is not uncommon for middle initials to be listed incorrectly both in the census and when written on photographs. The census lists the Evan’s parents as being named Thomas and Mahala. Thomas was a furnace worker and he and his wife were born in Wales.

  1. Wonderful, sweet photo of the two brothers. I am sure that the older brother was teased about his ears!
