MORE Newkirk, Ihrig, Foster Family Pics for id . . .
Getting more scanned and would appreciate your help if you know any of the people in these pictures (or can eliminate my attempts at identification). Thanks for your help!
Pic 1: Left-Georgia Ihrig, right-Josie or Lucy?
Pic 2: Hubert Newkirk ??
Pic 3: Perry Edwin Ihrig’s wife, Estella or Stella Clary (?)
Pic 4: Charles Amiss Newkirk’s 2nd wife, Anna Lyda Calvert Newkirk
Pic 5: Alberta Jean Newkirk
Pic 6: Hubert Newkirk, Robert Ihrig, James Henry Foster (Tilden’s brother)
Pic 7: Alice Lancaster Ihrig
Pic 8: Alice Lancaster Ihrig
Pic 9: Top right, Wesley Everett Newkirk as the teacher.
Pic 10: Newkirk Reunion on 06 Sept 1915. I see Joseph Barker Newkirk, Charles Amiss Newkirk, Joseph Newkirk, and another guy in a lot of pics. Wesley Everett Newkirk holding Hubert Newkirk in center left. Perhaps identifying the rest would be too big a task!?
Pic 11: Just for fun, wallpaper from the house in Ivor. The “flowers” are from upstairs, the other from downstairs. The bottom is the newspaper on the back.
I remember seeing all these when Jean and I were living with our grandparents.
1 Georgia and Josie or Lucy, you are right.
2 Could be Hubert. Wonder where that frame came from (with that little doo-dad on the bottom!)
3 My memory fails me on this one. But I’ll think about it.
4 You are right. Anna Lyda Calvert Newkirk.
5 You are right.
6 Hubert and Robert, and Jim Foster, Tilden’s brother. Jim and his family attended Newport Nazarene Church when Robert Ihrig was Pastor.
7 You are right.
8 You are right.
9 Everett when he taught school.
10 Look carefully you will see Everett, holding Hubert left center of the photo. You are right on the others, I don’t know the rest.
11 Wow! Brings back memories!
I love this stuff. You are doing very well at identifying these!
I’ve read that the swastika (seen on the picture frame above) was a good symbol to the German people in the 1800’s when the Ihrigs came to the US. THis picture frame probably came with them. Too bad Hitler ruined it for everybody. It is startling to see that symbol on my Fathers baby photo!
It was also a common decorative design in the ’20s (?). There was a public school in Rome, NY where I substituted that had several of them on the floor in the entry way. Notice, though, that it is a mirror-image of the way Hitler used them. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Western_use_of_the_swastika_in_the_early_20th_century)
OML if no. 5 is your mom, daryl, I believe she and I look too much alike! I wish your mom could be seeing these too…..she will remember long term stuff but may deny it…..lol!
Here is a possibility for photo #3. Perry Edwin Ihrig’s wife, Estella or Stella Clary. I found a picture of her online and there is a difference in age, but the pictures resemble each other. You can go to my family tree and check out Stella Clary and see what you think.
Perry Edwin Ihrig, son of Eginhart Ihrig, brother of Georgia. I’m almost positive #3 is his wife Stella.
First of all, she must be a relative by marriage, because she has no family resemblance or features. She must have been close and well thought of because they have a nice picture of her. She must have had a connection on the Ihrig side of the family, because they seemed to have a lot of really nice portrait type photos, which the Newkirks did not have. My grandmother had lots of family photos she inherited from her parents. Her clothing places her late 1800’s to early 1900’s. So, the first thing I would look for is a daughter in law of Eginhart and Alice. I have pictures of Albert and Roberts wives and she is not them. That leaves Perry Edwin. So I looked on Ancestry.com for a picture of Stella Clary Ihrig, and boom! I think she is it! Oh, and another thing, her portrait was from a Cincinnati photographer which places her in this area. I love genealogy stuff! Also, I could be wrong, but I don’t think so!
Anna Lyda Calvert was my great grandmother (son Wallace Clare Calvert, then George Morgan Calvert, then me, Catherine Calvert, and the next generation, since I am married to a British man (but didn’t change my name) are Findlay-Shirras girlies
Catherine, Thanks for stopping by!
Charles Amiss Newkirk is my great-great-grandfather by his 1st wife so I guess that makes us step-cousins of some sort?
