This cabinet card photograph features a very handsome man wearing fur coat in Prineville, Oregon. Note his wonderful mustache. This cabinet card portrait was taken by the Western Photo Association studio. The managers of the business were G. H. Ramsdell and F. P. Eastburn. A notation on the reverse of the photograph indicates that the subject of this photo is J. H. Nigle of Prineville, Oregon. The date of the photograph is noted as March, 1891. A preliminary search found little information about the gentleman in this photo. The U.S. General Land Office has an 1891 record of a John H. Nigle from Crook County (the location of Prineville). No other information was found. SOLD

  1. Could the name instead have been J. H. Wigle? There was a John Henry Wigle, born in 1861, residing in Prineville, up until his death in 1949.

    • It is entirely possible that your John H Wigle (not Nigle) is the gentleman in this photograph. I have seen so many occurrences of names being spelled wrong on the census or other documents. Sometimes a person’s name can be spelled wrong or changed in some way multiple times.
