My purpose is to write a rule-out concerning the unknown Bestor who was a photographer in 1866. William H. Bestor who married Barbara "Nichols" in Lake County in 1865 (her surname is incorrect on the marriage document: it was Niggli) was a boilermaker. My study focuses on the Bestor family, and I'd like to know who the 1866 photographer was. The author only said this "may be" William H., and it is definitely not William H. the boilermaker.
