I don't have that partnership listed in my database of Indiana photographers, but J. F. Holloway (Jonathan F. ) worked in Zionsville in the 1890s. I don't have definitive dates for him.

Thank you so much for the lookup on Woodruff & Holloway. It's possible Jonathan Holloway is the same man from an earlier partnership, or a son, as I estimate the photograph I have is taken before the 1890's.

May I ask if you have a photographer by the name of, "J.M. Nay", Lebanon, Boone County, Indiana in your database? Thanks for your help.

I just found one more lead about Nay. His name was James M. Nay and by 1900 he was a photographer in Roachdale, Indiana (Putnam County). He died in 1918 in Indianapolis.
