You have some wonderful family pictures there, are you attaching them to your family tree? I’m not awake yet, gonna go get my coffee, that was hard work!
Thanks! Big help! Laura found a box in her basement which had Mom & Dad’s pics in them (some of them) so I brought them home to scan. There were several more which I could ID, which I’ll try to add . . .
Do you recognize who Bernice Ihrig has her hand on in pic #12?
I don’t know at the moment, maybe it will come to me later.
#9 Eginhart and Alice in the center. On the right, Louis Ihrig(Eginhart’ s brother) and his wife,who is Alice Lancaster’s sister. Can’t think of her first name.
#9 The lady seated on the right – Arlura Lancaster Ihrig, sister of Alice Lancaster Ihrrig. The gentleman on the right – Louis Ihrig, brother of Eginhart Ihrig and husband of Arlura. I just keep thinking of something else!
I think picture 5 is Grandpa Foster (grace’s father) and Mary Ann
Mary Ann thought it was her mom . . . updating all now . . .
#8 I really believe that the gentleman standing in front of car is Charles Britton, Everitt’s nephew. The girl standing is Berniece Ihrig, definitely. the other girls are probably Charles Britton’s sisters. They are the children of Ollie Newkirk Britton and Howard Britton.
# 8.. Charles Britton had 4 sisters all very close in age. I do think these are the Britton girls, and probably Ruth Newkirk seated inside the car.
wow, Donna, what a memory!!! I wish mom could see these too! was the pic with Papa when we took him to Florida with us?
Cheryl, I have been digging into the family tree for many years and have learned alot that way. One learns how to identify by many different means, who could it be, who would it not be, how old do they look to be in relation to other family members, who would be hanging out together in a partiular place, looking through many old photos so that you know what they look like, and on and on. If I relied only on my memory, I would not be able to identify anyone!
who took the pic of Maw in the casket? Anyone know?
do you have a picture of faye ihrig
I may. I’ll have to check.
On pic 11 – back row from left, after Joseph Newkirk is William H. Newkirk, Melissa Newkirk and her twin sister Agnes Newkirk. On the first row are the rest of the sisters, can’t remember their names, but all are Joseph Barker’s children. I am William H. Newkirk’s granddaughter, Betty Newkirk Kearns of Ashland, KY.
