Lost Faces Photo Album - Is one your ancestor?

Lost Faces Photo Album - Is one your ancestor?
This is another album in my collection of Civil War era photo albums. It appears to be mostly of the Chidester family and most of the photos are mid to late 1860s

Below is the list of names which were written on the album pages in period handwriting.

Most of the photos are CDVs (Cartes de Visite) but there are several early tintypes.

As I scan these photos front and back I will be putting them online on Lost Faces on my Olive Tree Genealogy website. They will join 63 other antique photo albums I have there.

A Zadock Chidester married Susanna Tharp in West Virginia in 1840. He died in Monroe County, Iowa in 1897. They had sons Leader, Elliott, Franklin, and Grant. I'm not related, just found these in an Ancestry Tree.
