Postmortem Photography

On December 13, 2012, the NGS Blog posted about Postmortem Photography.  You can check out their post at the link below.  Have you found any postmortem photos while researching?  I have bunches of actual cemetery photos, heck even that photo of my Great Grandparents standing next to their shiny new tombstone, but in all of the photos I have gone through I have only found one postmortem photo.  This photo was found, unlabeled among John Robert Roger's personal photos.  There was a whole slew of family and friends that sent John photos.  John lived in West Virginia most of his life. These young women and the baby could be related or not; no one has been sure.
