Tobey Family

Catherine (Tobey) Clinton

I believe the above photo is of Catherine Tobey, the second wife of Eli Clinton. Both Eli and Catherine died in Hobart, Indiana, where this photo was taken.

The back of the photograph has "Grandma Clinton" in pencil. The photo album is labeled in ink, "Grandma Deborah Tobey Clinton". Deborah died in 1846 at Battle Creek, Michigan. She was 28 years old.
