2 year old Edward Cecil Barnard

Photo Details

What a gorgeous little boy! On the front of the photo is handwritten "Edward Cecil Barnard" and on the back, "2 years 1930." He seems to have a little toy in his hand - I wish I could tell what it is. I also wish I knew what became of him!

Edited April 6, 2010 (5 years later!) to add that I recently received a message from a relative: "My name is Theodore (Ted) Barnard III. This is a picture of my great Uncle. I am named after my Grandfather which is Edward's brother..." How wonderful to find a family connection!

No locations or photographers are identified. This is the only information I have specifically about this photo.

I purchased this in a huge lot of photos from Ebay. They have no traceable history as the seller got them from someone who checks the dumpsters behind estate sales around several states in the midwest! I can only list what is on the individual photos themselves as they all came from different places. That's why I'm posting as many photos as I can, so any more of their history isn't lost. I would be interested to know if they help any family researchers though.


Margarette Martin I know that Ted Barnard was my Grandfather Hubert Eldridge Barnard's brother. Ted was at his wedding with Grace Ophelia Thurmond (Sayre, Beckham Co, Ok, 27 Mar 1934). They divorced when my Mom was 3 years old and her sister was just a few years older. His new wife Ruth, did not want to acknowledge my Mom nor my aunt as being his daughters and they were not allowed to see him. My Mom went to see him a few years before his passing and was amazed at how much I looked like his granddaughter from Ruth. The families were torn apart from the divorce and Cecil and his wife were allowed to continue their relationship with my Mom and her sister. I would love to find out more.
