  Phony Benoni: The database had dated this game as 1955, but it appeared in the "Americzn Chess Bulletin", July / August 1916, p. 166. The players are given as E. B. Edgar if Montgomery, Alabama, and T. W. Lott of Brooklyn, New York.

ACB stops with Black's resignation on move 19, and it's quite possible the remainder is analysis, not part of the orginal game.
