Daniel Franklin Flannery of Oil City, Pennsylvania born Jan 19 1853 in Ohio and graduated Cornell in 1876. Apparently he was on the baseball team as well, as this photo depicts him in a very ornate bibbed jersey. The photo taken by J. W. Taylor of Randolph, New York.

A very nice and scarce ID'd CDV of a somewhat prominent citizen.
