TALE OF TWO LITTLE-KNOWN GREENCASTLE PHOTOGRAPHERS ~ In a newly donated collection of the Baer & Lear families in Greencastle were three photographs - one of Mary Baer (sister of Philip & Frank Baer), & wife of Frank Lear, taken by W. J. E. Collins, Greencastle, PA. and two photographs - one a little boy, Frank Baer (brother of Philip & Mary Baer), taken by D. O. Alter Greencastle, PA & a second 1882 Alter photograph of Frank Lear, Mary's husband. ~ This is the first I've heard of these two photographers. So who were they? ~ DAVID O ALTER was born in 1850 in Cumberland Co, PA, the son of Benjamin & Catherine Alter. In 1860, the family lived in Sylvan, Warren Twp, Franklin Co. In Greencastle 1870 & 1880 US Census records, David was married to Ida and they had a son John. David's occupation was photographer. ~ Although his "Stationary Gallery" was in Greencastle, Alter was also "Photographer at the Park," that is - Pine Grove (Furnace) Park on the eastern foot of South Mountain. These facts are stated on the reverse of an 1882 tin type of Frank Lear, as seen in images #3 & 4. ~ WILLIAM J. E. COLLINS was born Feb 25, 1859 in Easton, MD. He was the son of George & Maria Collins. In 1870, the family was living in St. Dennis, Talbot Co, District 13, Baltimore, MD. His father was an iron moulder. The family moved to York, PA where in 1880, George was a machinist & William (22) was a photographer. William had completed school through 4th grade but had done exceedingly well for himself as a photographer. ~ BUT I could not find him in the Greencastle census records. I believe he was in Greencastle in 1890. The 1890 census records were accidentally burned. ~ In 1900 & 1910, William and his wife Annie were living in Waynesboro, PA where he had a photography studio. David continued his profession in Washington, D.C. during the 1920 US Census. ~ By 1930, William returned to the Eastern Shore, where he was born, to St Michaels, Talbot Co, MD. He was 71 and Annie was 70. His profession was photographer within the industry of Artist. ~ Ten years later in 1940, they (81 & 80 years old) were still living in the same house. He was listed as a retired photographer. ~ I began to track his wife Annie. She was born in Greencastle on April 1, 1860 the daughter of William & Sarah Kreps. William Collins married Annie Kreps. ~ Annie died April 7, 1950 at 90 years old and six days. ~ William Collins died November 11, 1951 at 92 years, eight months, and 17 days. They are buried in the Spring Hill Cemetery, Easton, Talbot Co, MD
