Bushby AC, & Hart, SS: Bushby & Hart, No. 71 Broad Street, Lynn, Essex County MA. (known to be photographers Asa C. Bushby or Asa Bushby 1834-1897 and Samuel S. Hart or Samuel Stanley Hart 1840-1894. Before the Civil War, it appears these two best friends moved together to Columbus, Franklin County, Ohio and opened a daguerreotype studio there as Bushby & Hart from 1859-1860. When the war broke out, they returned together to Lynn, MA to enlist in Co. D, 14th Mass, and spent 3 years in service guarding Washington DC. Returning home to Lynn, they set up shop again. In 1871, Samuel married Asa's sister, Lydia Bushby Hart 1836-1910. Asa and Lydia's parents were Joseph Bushby 1802–1876 and Almira Peabody Bushby 1804–1880, a direct descendant of Lieut. Francis Peabody, who came over from England and settled in Ipswich Mass in 1635, and whose brother William married a daughter of John and Priscilla Alden. This is an important DAR, Daughters of the American Revolution and SAR Sons of the American Revolutionary War family. Note: Asa never married, although his sister Mary Bushby is confused as his wife living in the same house in the 1870 census. (He is also listed as single on his death certificate) Asa & Samuel were in business in Lynn from 1869 to about 1881 and were very successful for 12-14 years. Over the years, the Bushby & Hart studios were located at 71 & 108 Broad Street, and the First National Bank Building at 54 Exchange Street in Lynn. Asa then moved to Boston in the early 1880's and was in partnership with George W. MaCurdy 1851-1909 as Bushby & MaCurdy, and also with photographers MaCurdy and Odin Fritz 1860-1914 as Bushby, MaCurdy & Fritz. Samuel is listed as a carpenter in Lynn at this time in business directories. Asa then moved to the Pacific coast, first to Portland, Oregon, in business there at Bushby & Co. with Clarence J. Messer. He then moved to Tacoma, Pierce County, Washington in 1888. He is listed as a photographer in Tacoma in the early 1890's. Sadly, he died at Fort Steilacoom, Pierce Co., Washington in 1897 at the age of 57. Fort Steilacoom had been refitted as a hospital for the insane in 1871. Asa's death certificate lists that he died of "Paresis", and that he had suffered for over 2 years. Many early daguerreotype photographers suffered from the debilitating effects of mercury poisoning, and we wonder if this was the case for Asa. This is only conjecture. He is buried at Tacoma Cemetery. Samuel Hart died in Feb 1894 in Belleview, Marion County, Florida, and his burial place is unknown, although he is listed in the "Index for Burials at Sea". Lydia died in 1910 and is buried at Monumental Cemetery in Peabody, Mass with many of her Peabody and Hart relatives. It should be noted that Asa Bushby was also an accomplished portrait artist and traveled as a young student to Europe to study art)  Note: also see the Bushby & Hart listing below under OHIO PHOTOGRAPHERSCDV Photo, see their work hereherehere and here.

Shaw, one of the pioneer amusement men of this country, inventor of the famous “dip,” and the man who first built a toboggan slide at Coney Island, died last evening at his residence, 1365 Park Road Northwest, after a lingering illness of six months. Death was due to vesical calculi. Mr. Shaw was 70 years of age. In the summer of 1882 Mr. Shaw owned, built, and operated a toboggan at Coney Island. This created quite a sensation, and was imitated in amusement parks all over the civilized world. Mr. Shaw also built several amusement devices at Revere Beach, near Boston, but for twenty years, both winter and summer, made his home at Coney Island. Mr. Shaw came to Washington later and built the devices and buildings at Glen Echo Park. He was the first to conceive the idea of the thrill in mechanical amusement devices, and as a result his world famous “dips” are installed in parks all over the country. Mr. Shaw was a member of the Chamber of Commerce and the Board of Trade, and took an active part in celebrations of a civic nature. He is survived by his children: Walter P. Shaw, Mrs. Annie Young, Mrs. W.H. Carroll, and Mrs. Lillian Thwing, and his wife, Mrs. Alonzo Shaw. Funeral services will be at the family home tomorrow at 2PM.

In 1870, James works as a photographer in Baltimore, Maryland. His son Harry Jeffres, also later a photographer, is born in Baltimore in 1869. We then find him working in York, PA from 1870-1886. His studio is J.E. Jeffries New Photograph Gallery, No. 6 West Market St., York, PA. We believe he sells this business in York about 1886, as we find W.H. Swords, Photographer, named as a "successor to J.E. Jeffres" in York PA files. (known to be photographer William H. Swords 1855-1930, buried at Prospect Hill Cemetery in York, York County, Pennsylvania) We find J.E. Jeffres at 12 & 14 E. State St. in Trenton, Mercer County, New Jersey in 1882-1883, was this a son working under his father's name? Interestingly, we also find a W. Jeffres working as a photographer in Trenton as early as 1866, was this James father? In 1885, James E. Jeffres is found in the Norfolk, Virginia City Directory working as a photographer. We later find his 2 sons Harry J. Jeffries, born 1869 and Edwin Jeffres, or Edwin W. Jeffres, born 1871, in Baltimore, both photographers. Edwin Jeffres worked at 534 N. Carey St. in Baltimore, Maryland in the 1890 City Directory. This surname Jeffres is seems to switch between Jeffries, Jeffers, Jeffres or Jeffress, even within the family. We do find a James E.
