Attached is the only photo that I have of Elam A. Hogaboom (1815-1884).  He is pictured here with his wife Margaret Wells Hogaboom (1822-1900-buried Jobs corner).  We believe that this photo was taken somewhere in the tri-counties area but do not know for sure and do not have a specific date.  Elam Hogaboom lived mostly in Elmira but as you know, how everyone else also did in this area, he also lived in Tioga and Bradford counties. We estimate that the time frame is somewhere between 1850-1880.  There are no other marking on the photograph (on the back),  the name on the front is the only one.  I know this isn't very helpful but as of now you know as much about this picture as we do.  Maybe you have heard of the photographer before.  Sorry I couldn't be more helpful with this.
