William Hayes Acklen was the middle son of Adelicia and Joseph Hayes Acklen.  He was born at Belmont in 1855 and died in Ormond Beach, Florida, in 1940.  

 

This carte-de-visite was made at the Levitsky Studio, 22 Rue de Choiseul in Paris.  Count Sergei Lvovich Levitsky (Russian, 1819-1898) was one of Europe’s most important photographers and innovators.  In 1864, when he left Paris, he sold his studio to Augustin Aimé Joseph Le Jeune (French, act. 1864 –ca. 1885) who continued operating under the Levitsky name.
