Edwin + Sofa Gorvin, Harry Wastmecott children

Photo Details

I've included a view of the names which are written on the back of the photo. I believe that the adults are most likely the Gorvins, Edwin and Sofa, possibly brother and sister as they are named separately even though they have the same surname. Also pictured are the "Harry Wastmecott children." No locations or photographers are identified, and the house in the background is barely recognizeable so not a great clue. (Probaby the neighbours' house anyway!) 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.


Chris Morton These are distant relatives of mine who emigrated from Wales in 1872 and ended up settling in Kansas. It is of a father (Edwin) and daughter (Sophia) Gorvin (also listed in census information as Garvin). When Edwin died in 1914 the family moved to Los Angeles.
This site is amazing!
