I bought two old albums of family photos at the Tinker Farm estate sale
in West Sunbury, Pennsylvania. Under one photo I found the names: "Mrs.
Hebblethwaite - Sarah Hebblethwaite." On the back of the photo is:
"W B Micklethwaite, Photographic Artist, Westgate, Heckmondwike & Commercial
I believe I've found the link between the Hebblethwaites (England) and the Tinkers (Pennsylvania). In 1859, Annie Hebble(th)waite (b. Penistone 1838) married Zechariah Wainwright Tinker (b.

Zechariah (Zachariah) Wilkins Tinker, born in Pennsylvania, married his cousin Frances Tinker, daughter of Zachariah Wainwright Tinker and Annie Hebblewaite (Hebblethwaite) Tinker. He is the "Z.W. Tinker" of West Sunbury, PA, whose family had the estate sale where I purchased the albums/post cards.

I surmise that the "Mrs. Hebblethwaite and Sarah Hebblethwaite" shown in the picture album are the widow Sarah and Sarah E. Since the photo is undated, it's hard know know for certain. Can anyone help solve this photographic mystery?
Reply from Andy Micklethwaite:
I'm doing a One Name Study of Micklethwaites and
came across your photo taken by W B Micklethwaite. He was born in
Ripponden West Riding of Yorkshire, married in Ashton Lancashire in 1840
and was still there in 1861. He was in Heckmondwike in 1871, but remarried in
Rochdale in 1874.
