 [JOHNSON, Ann nee Flower] An early 1/6th plate daguerreotype of an older lady beside a table with a clock, in a plain top-opening leather case (80 x 90mm). Inside is a lose label reading "I think Ann Johnson (née Flower) sister of Hannah Clements & wife of George Johnson". The plate is in good condition (cleaned?). 

Hannah Flower married James Clements in Liverpool in 1817, and in the 1851 census they are living in West Derby, with two sons, both born in Liverpool. Hannah was born about 1797 in Hawksworth, Yorkshire, so her sister Ann was probably born in this same area (near Leeds). The age of the sitter is consistent with a birth circa 1790-1800.
