Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
A collection of 45 photographs (glass plate negatives, lantern slides, and copy prints) of Apache peoples and some U.S. Army soldiers in Arizona, approximately 1899. The Apache are seen with baskets, in family groups, posed with rifles, riding horses, and in lines at federal agency buildings.
Reverend Berry (James Littleberry) Edmiston was born in 1831 in Lincoln County, Tennessee. In 1861, he married Ednah Lee, and they both graduated from Adrian College, Maryland in 1866. In 1869, he became pastor of the Swedenborgian Society church in Henry, Illinois. The Edmistons moved to Riverside, California in 1878 and settled on a ranch. Edmiston became pastor of the New Jerusalem (Swedenborgian) Church of Riverside in 1885; he died in 1912.
