No family history, just photo history......
The photos are coming from these two wonderful old albums. My plans are to eventually to scan every photo and try to make sense of them by comparing shots on the computer rather that take the photos out of the book. I want to leave them in the same order as the owner of the albums had placed them.
This is the photo of the same couple as was above, only I believe they may have not been married yet.
The man did not live long as you can see the funeral card made here. There was writing on the back, no name, but that he had died March 28, 1897. As you can see he and his wife were from Fort Wayne, Indiana. I have yet to find an exact name but I have a set of three sisters in the book and I think that the man from Osceola in the photo is married to one of the sisters.
So the main portion of the pictures in the two albums are coming from Osceola, Iowa and Fort Wayne, Indiana. There is one photo from Kellerton, Iowa and another from Clarinda, Iowa.
I will post about my own family from here on but I had a little more "show and tell" to do here as I found names today and it does get interesting. I will leave you one more picture of a woman with great character and determination as you can see in her face. She is an unknown for now.
