Heritage Auctions have another Cross sampler sheet - we've seen it before, but the resolution is better and I've broken it down into individual images. I think these are all early cross images (i.e. 1877-ish):
Lakota woman and child
Cheyenne man (Black Tongue?)
I'm afraid I can't read the name on this one
Spotted Tail's daughters: 'Chimp' and Sky
Chyenne Chief (looks something like Opealis or Opelia or Opasha??? It seems to be the Miniconjou Red Skirt, however.
Standing Bear's daughters
Little Hawk (Cheyenne, I think)
Another Cross sampler:
Yankton Indian homes
Burial scaffolds, Yankton Agency
Hope School, Springfield, Dakota Territory
Presbyterian Day School
Sitting Bull and wife No. 2, Fort Randall
Sitting Bull's camp, Fort Randall
Sitting Bull's camp, Fort Randall - usually labelled as Brave Bear and wife, though they are clearly two men!
Winter quarters - Tepees
Drying meat - Indian horseback
Less sure about the dates here. Cross was working from the late 1870s through 1890. The Fort Randall pictures are clearly from 1881, when his photos were credited to bailey, Dix and Mead. The clothing in a couple of the photos would suggest a later date, but maybe they were scouts or just father down the line to that dreaded idea, acculturation.
