Little is known about Clara T. Keaton, except for the information printed on the front of this tintype (ca. 1870s).  Keaton was born in 1798 and is identified as the first depositor at the National Savings and Trust Bank in Baltimore.  It is believed that this photograph was taken in commemoration of her deposit (in The Faces of Our Past, page 133).
