Description

This is a Sepia Photograph of the portrait of the Reverend John Blackwall who came to North Carolina from England in 1725 and was Rector at a church there for one year. (could not make out Churches name) He was afterward Rector of King o ----- Parish until his death in a county in Virginia, until his death on Feb. 13th 1747 .

Some of the family information that was known and the names and the dates on back of Picture go to 1950 though limited. And of course the above info and what I couldn't make out. So, I figure the Reverend John Blackwall was around 50 or so years old when he died.

I liked the the total look of this picture it spoke of our country's early history. The Photograph of the Portrait was taken at Goodrich Studio Henderson North Carolina. I love the work and the frame. As I have come to expect the back was removed at one time by some one looking for treasure of some sort. They even put it back on upside down. The frame measures 13-1/4" by 13-1/2" and it adds to the over all appeal of this work of art.

I believe the photograph most Likely was by Ray Wilkes Goodrich (1900-1975) He was born to James Philo and Carolina Wilkes Goodrich, in Surry County, Virginia. He served in the armed forces during World War I, where he learned basic photography skills. Following the service he worked as a photographer in Richmond, Virginia, then served as head of the department of industrial photography at E.I. DuPont de Nemours and Company.

During that period Goodrich married Myrtle Whitmore (1903-1998) of Durham, North Carolina. Around 1920 he moved to Henderson where he established the Goodrich Studio. In 1927 Goodrich was elected president of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA), Inc. Around 1940 he moved with his young family to Winston-Salem. This photograph spoke of our country's early history and talent in the art form of photography
