Group 103

Scrapbook from Emporia, Kansas - c. 1900's - 1940

Group 99-This was a small group of pictures of African American's. These photos are copies of originals and have no details. In one group picture, probably of college students, they are all wearing arm bands with what looks like the letters "MB?" The last one is either the number one or another letter, maybe an A for MBA, maybe it is their degree Master of Business Administration? There are no indictions of where this was taken. Aside from that picture, there is one of a young girl, a young man and one of a small child. Hard to date this, but maybe 1920's?

Group 100-These photos were in a collage frame. They are originals and were unfortunately glued together. I photographed the collage and then proceeded to get them separated out of the frame and take them apart for scanning. I picked them up in an Antique store in Grant Florida between Sebastion & Melbourne. There is a set of twin girls in the photos, as children, teenagers & adults. Only one photo (boy on the beach) has any information on it. He is identified as Howard Clarkson Whitcomb Jr. and it is dated Aug 11, 1932. He looks about 10, so possibly born about 1920-1922? Taken at The Sands Ocean Park?? 

Group 101-Just a couple of photos I picked up at an Antique store in Sebastion, Florida. One is Charles H. Eddy possibly taken in Brownwood or Concho, Texas and the other is a tin type of a young girl c. 1870's.

Group 102 Class picture from Oil City, Pennsylvania. Names are Almeda Kelly, Flossie Irwin, Theda J. Kranz, Caroline Hartle, Esther Pyle, Lillian Smith, Hilda Vieth, R. P. Bankson, Edith Diegel, Glenn Seely, Martha Graham, Frank Harvey, Frances Heath. (Looks like a High School or College class) I think this picture is 1920 - 1930 time period.

Just added a new yearbook:

84,85,86,87,88,90

These are all small groups of photos from Goodwill, Etsy, Ebay & Iron Horse Antiques. They arrived to me from Indianapolis Indiana, Long Beach, Ca, Stockton New Jersey, Deland Florida & Manassas, Virginia but were taken in many other places. Most do not have names, but many do have the photography studio. Keep in mind, these places are just where the photos ended up, most were taken eleswhere.

 

Group 83-I purchased this scrapbook on Ebay. It was mailed to me from Amity, Maine but most of the pictures that have any studio names on them are from Cambridge, Boston & Brookline, Massachusetts.The most recent picture c.1940-1950 was taken in Roxbury, Massachusetts. Also in the scrapbook is a postcard with Russian writing on it mailed to Boston, one studio picture taken in Russia, so the family may have Russian origins. There are many family pictures, babies, children, weddings. Not many names, but one was Ruth Hyter or Ruth Hyfer. The post card was mailed to a name that was something like....Ahekfa Dreltuga Stilmonflpeit at N84 Boston, Massachusetts Dec 14 1911.Some letters are Russian and I'm sure I do not have them represented correctly, but did the best I could. Some nice pictures in here, so worth taking a look at.

Group 79- School picture c.1920-1930 from Goodwill in Toledo, Ohio. No information on this picture. It might be from a school in Toledo, Ohio or somewhere close?

Group 76 Grace Reynolds (Now Mrs. Theron Webb-Little Rock Arkansas) from Atkins, Arkansas scrapbook album. I bought this album on Ebay. It belonged to Anna E Reynolds, daughter of Mrs. W. L. Reynolds and sister to Grace & Georgia Reynolds. Most of the pictures do not have names on them but are likely friends, neighbors & family of the Reynolds family. Some of the other names that are mentioned are: Calvin Briggs, Carl Treagor, Peoria, Illinois, Emil Atleman & Della Bra-----Henryetta, Oklahoma, Felder & Carl Webb, Kansas City, Mo., Aubrey Covington (not sure on this one?), Mary Elizabeth Burris, some portraits taken in Russelville, Arkansas. Lots of great pictures in this album. The album itself is dated 1919 and most of the pictures would appear to fit that time frame and later.

Group 75 This group of pictures came from a scrapbook that was taken apart. There are only a couple of names. From some that have studio names and a few other clues, this appears to be a German family, celebrating Christmas, vacationing at the  at Kolberg in
Pomerania/Prussia (now Kolobrzeg in Poland), and elsewhere, some family homes and a couple of postcards. The pictures are very interesting. Please send me mail if you happen to recognize any of the places in the pictures. Scroll about half way through to get to this group.(After the Deeds)


Group 74 This is a collection of photos I picked up in Mt. Dora, Florida. Some of them are definitiely family but I can't say if all of them are related or not, only that they were bought from the same dealer. In addition to the photos, I also picked up a couple of Indentured Servant Warrantee Deeds from the 1860's in Washington Co., NY. Names on those are Yeldham, Haskins, Murphy, Church and Hyatt. Some of the names on the photos are Stange, Whitley, Kearns, Urell, Marceau, Domenick or Domenikini, Brown, Thatcher, Reidnor and more. Some photos are from Lynn & Adams, Massachusetts.


Group 73   This photo album was purchased in the town of Blue Ridge, Georgia. It contains a lot of postcards, mostly blank and never mailed. There are quite a few from California, Knox Berry Farm, San Francisco, Yosemite, LA, in the late 1950's-1960's time period. Also in this photo album are lots of old trade cards. Someone was trying to sell these as there is a handwritten note in the front. A name Jack Tanner is also written there. I can't say for sure if these items all belonged to one family or not, but certainly the photos seem to go together. Some names from the postcards are Capt. Harber Hall, George R Morrison, Mr. & Mrs. Bud Collins, Mrs. Esther Sinclair, Jesse Elkins, J. L. Momson (a ration card). From the photos that date from the 1920's to 1930's are, Ada & Oscar O'Neill,Gretchen & Carl Snyder. Some places are Ogdensburg, New York, Monticello, Indiana, Montreal, Trudeau Lake, Savannah.

Group 72  Ebay purchase from New York. 72-Believe the majority of these photos were taken in New York. Some really old pictures in this album. Many are tin types. Some of them had small etched writing on the paper that said Potters Patent March 7, 1865, some had no studio but seemed like they could have been from the same photographer. Some of the places are Norwich, Canastota, Utica, Hamilton, Fayetville in New York & one from Patterson, New Jersey. These should all be family. Some of the names are Marvin, Nichols, Hom or Homs, Crumb, Jenks and more.

Group 71 - Ebay purchase from Lower Burrell, Pennsylvania. The majority of these pictures are from the town of Vandergrift, Pennsylvania in Westmoreland County, not far from Pittsburg. There are many high school graduation pictures dated from the 1930's & 1940's. Most were taken at the Plank Studio. There are a handful of pictures with Italian writing on the back. This lot could have belonged to one family. There are some names and details on a few of them.

Military - I've created a new page, one photo here from my own collection-Bainbridge, Maryland Naval training Center "Boot Camp" c. August 1952 & a few others. Some are on other pages with the collection they came with, but will also add them to this page.

Yearbooks     1945 Desert University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona. Click on this page to see the list of yearbooks I have.

Group 70 - An interesting group of pictures from Arundel, Maine. This was an Ebay purchase. The pictures do seem to belong together as there are some of the same people. Some are studio pics, some are just snapshots. Two are of a group of Sailors on a ship at a dock that seems to be somewhere in Germany, possibly a "Carbonic Acid Works". That is what Google translated it to. I will add this one to my "Military page" also.


Group 67, 68, 69     67- Thought I had purchased these at Mt. Dora, Florida, but am not sure. These seem to be related as many of the same people are in multiple pictures. Some are Aunt Mae, Uncle Day, Edna, Jane & Jr. Many seem to have been taken in Pennsylvania & Indiana & Illinois. Other names are Prather, Gilbert Kelb or Kelv 7 Others. 68- Is a small group, all children mostly taken in Grand Rapids & Ithaca, Michigan, one from Ohio. 69- Another small group mostly from Jeffersonville, Indiana.

Group 66
-PS 142 8B3 Class of June 1935. Not sure where this is from, but it could be Manhattan New York. Other states may use the P S (Public School) numbering system. If it is Manhattan, then it could be Amalia Castro at 100 Attorney St, Manhattan, NY (Look for this photo at the very end)

Group 64-This is a group of post cards from Iron Horse Antiques in Manassas, VA & Two Guys Antiques in Dumfries, VA. Even if you don't have any family connection, the post cards are worth seeing.

Group 61 -Ebay purchase from Liverpool, New York-Not really sure of the origins of the photos themselves.

Group 62 -Purchased from Deadwood Dicks in South Dakota.

Group 63 -Purchased from Two Guys Antiques in Dumfries, Prince William County, Virginia. Scrapbook belonging to Loretta Marlene Burchette. Most of these pictures are of high school students attending Pulaski High School in Pulaski, Virginia & Radford College Students between 1950-1960. Lots of newspaper articles in the book but I only scanned the ones that included pictures, so if you have family who attended these schools the names could be in them but you will have to contact me  to look for them.

Yearbooks I've added three new yearbooks to my collection. Too many pictures to scan, so you need to contact me for a Look-up  if you think you may have an ancestor in one of them. Check my yearbook page for a full listing of the yearbooks I have.
I have just added the following yearbooks:

The 1941 Indiana High School "The L'inden" Indiana, Pennsylvania
The 1942 Indiana High School "The L'inden" Indiana, Pennsylvania
1924 Echo Ste. Genevieve High School-Ste. Genevive, Missouri

Group 60  This group was an Ebay purchase. I believe most of them are originally from England as the ones with studio information have addresses that seem to be located there. 
 
Group 59    These pictures came from two "mini scrapbooks". One is suede and a souvenir from Washington DC while the other is leather and from St. Louis Mo. There are some people who are the same in both books, so either belonged to the same person or at least the same family. Only name to be found was Eliza Scaife. The pictures date between 1890 - 1940's. There are some really great snapshots here-worth taking a look at! 

Group 58   This group is mostly from the 1940's & 1950's and I believe are also related to the Maidment/Perry family from Group 57 because a news clipping contained the 60th wedding anniversary of the Tom Perry & Edith Maidment but these people are probably the next generation and beyond. Also included are a couple of photographs of a school in Lonerock, Oregon dating back to a much earlier time period. Scroll down about halfway to see this group which is on the same page as Group 57.

Group 57  These photos have been scanned from an intact scrapbook. While most of the photographs have no identification of names or places, they probably all belong to the Perry & Maidment families. There is a newspaper article of Tom Perry & Edith Maidment-Perry celebrating their 60th wedding Anniversary. The article does not have a date or other identification, but there is a picture of the couple with their anniversary cake dated June 1960, so probably they married in June 1910. The article goes on to say that they married in Lonerock (a city in Gilliam County, Oregon). Some of the family mentioned in this article who may also be in the photographs are: Mrs. Albert Williamson of Hermiston, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Bennett of Centralia, Miss Georgia Perry, Mr. and Mrs. Perry Crenshaw and son Creston of Lebanon, Mr. and Mrs. Page Bennett and Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Maidment of Chehalis, Mr. and Mrs. Morris Bennett of Seattle, Mr. and Mrs. Jay Blair of Salem, Mr. and Mrs. Lyle Maidment of Bend, Mrs. Hazel Long and four daughters of Pomeroy, Washington, Mr. and Mrs. O.P. Hinehart of Joseph, Mr. and Mrs. Ray Rood and Earl Gilliam of Herpner, Mr. and Mrs. Leo Perry of Ellensburg, Mr. and Mrs. George Perry and Lawrence Perry of Pendleton, Mrs. Jennie Kellog and Miss Gerorgia Perry of Condon.












From group 82-Civil War Era Album belonging to Miss R.A. Stonebraker-this is a list of names written in the front of the book!

Additions

Group 35

I bought these pictures from the Indianapolis, Ind Goodwill-They appear to belong to the same family. There was one picture that may have a name that looked like Norman Beane, but it could be the name of a studio. There was also a certificate for a Katherine Miriam Watson for the St Louis Cardinals from St Louis, Missouri dated 1972, so these pictures could belong to the Watson family. Some were taken in Chicago, Il.


Group 36

These pictures were also bought from the Indianapolis, Ind Goodwill, but most indicate they were previously in an album from Lebanon, Oregon. Most of these pictures have names on them and are studio portraits. There was one letter with the bunch, so I left it with the group it came with in case it is from the same family.
Some of the surnames are-Shanks, Booth, Downs, Peters, Haviland, Butler, Watson, Briggs, Wilson, Newton, Henson, Slates, Mendenhall, Eliot, Camp, Sums, Wicks.
