A message from Tete got me to thinking about old photos that I have.
and I thought I'd do a post on old family photos
This is the oldest, though I never saw it until 2005
Joel Weeks aka Joseph Brown, taken about 1849-1850
The type camera used was updated about that time, but probably in the south,
the old cameras were still in use, hence the chair with the attachment.
(my great great grandfather on my dad's side of family)
Mother's grandfather, Jocephus Finch
he looks as if he is about to face a firing squad.
No photo of his wife, she died young.
Silas C. and Betty Osburn, mom's dad's grandparents
Silas and Betty and all their children.
D. W Osburn, son of Silas and Betty
and wife #8 Cora
L. C. and Allie Mae Osburn, their wedding photo
Son of D. W and Laura
(according to Grandfather, I got my red hair from his mother, Laura, he said
that is all he can remember of her, she died when he was about 3 or 4.)
L. C and Allie in 1953.
Hubby's grandparent's wedding photo
W. J. and Martha
A photo of W. J and Martha and most of their children.
The little blond boy on the right is hubby's father.
W. J. died in 1916 and Martha never remarried, she died in 1965.
I have his death certificate, it is one of the earliest in Arkansas, and
I can read everything on it, except the cause of death.
And that my friends, is a photo history of
our family, minus several photos that I need to recopy.
Hope you enjoyed seeing
