Collection of family portraits of the Charles M. Weber family of Stockton, Calif. and some of their Murphy relatives. Included are 12 half-plate daguerreotype views of Stockton and the exterior of the Weber home, taken for Weber by W.H. Rulofson, ca. 1850-1852. Also included are numerous cased daguerreotype, ambrotype, and tintype portraits of the Weber and Martin Murphy families, all of whom were pre-gold rush California pioneers. Nine carte de visite views by William M. Stuart of Stockton, Calif. during the flood of 1862 are present, as are numerous 19th century card photographs of family members.
