This is a carte-de-visite showing Abijah Wells who was an early pioneer, lawyer, and financier in Nemaha County, Kansas. He was born June 12, 1840, the son of William R. and Betsy K. Skinner Wells. The family came to Kansas in 1857, and soon after their arrival, William became involved in the free-state movement. Abijah attended Centralia College and later attended Kansas State Agricultural College. Early in life, Abijah decided to enter the legal profession, and after college, he entered the law office of J. E. Taylor, where he studied law. He was admitted to the Nemaha County bar in 1866 and practiced law all his life except for four years while a member of the Kansas Court of Appeals. In that same year, he married Loretta C. Williams, the daughter of Captain Arthur William Williams and Mary Angeline Nordyke. In early 1881, he became the editor and owner of the Seneca Tribune and later that year sold the paper. Wells held many offices including clerk of the district court, register of deeds, superintendent of education, mayor of Seneca, and the Seneca school board for a number of years. In addition to his legal career, he was vice-president of the National Bank of Seneca and involved in various financial interests. Abijah Wells died March 1, 1915 in Los Angeles, California.

Asa Tongat, Kiowa man, in Indian Territory

Asa Tongat, Kiowa man, in Indian Territory
Creator: Soule, William Stinson, 1836-1908
Date: Between 1869 and 1875
This carte-de-visite of Asa Tongat is believed to have been made in the early 1870s by William S. Soule at Fort Sill, Indian Territory. Asa Tongat is identified on the image as being Kiowa, but another known example of the same image identifies him as Kiowa-Apache. William Soule is well-known for the photographs he made of Southern Plains Indians in the late 1860s and early 1870s. He arrived at Fort Dodge in 1867, moved briefly to Camp Supply a couple of years later, then relocated to Fort Sill, where he remained until returning to Boston in late 1874 or early 1875. This carte-de-visite is one of at least fifty collected by Charles L. Wilson in the 1870s. Born in West Virginia, Wilson lived in Kansas most of his life, residing in St. George, Manhattan, Miltonvale, and Topeka. Little is known about how and why he acquired the cartes-de-visite. Notations on many of them suggest they were procured in Indian Territory; some notations also indicate that Wilson was a member of Company L of the Kansas Eleventh Cavalry. Because that regiment disbanded several years before the images were made, his military service was probably unrelated to the acquisition of the photographs. The Wilson collection is characterized by the unique style in which each carte-de-visite is mounted. The mounts obscure whatever photographer's imprint may exist on the original cards. More than one photographer is represented in the collection; however, many of the images can either definitely be attributed to Will Soule or, as in this case, are deemed likely to be his work.
