Barb Chapman Alfred Dann was my grandfather. Pictured left to right, front row: Viola Sarah "Vi" Dann 1889-1956, married Raymond Fenemore Vernon; John Rawlins Dann 1846-1927; Elizibeth "Lizzie" Moore Dann 1848-1929; and Ray John Dann 1891-1964. Back row: William Wilbert "Bert" (sometimes spelled Birt) Dann 1877-1916, never married; Margery Elizibeth "Madge" 1876-1915, married Fred C Jacobs; and Alfred Henry "Alf" Dann 1875-1935, married Ivy Blanche Hills.
From the ages of the children, we assume this picture was take in 1900-1901.
The earliest known ancestor, John Rawlins Dann's father William "Billy" Dann, migrated from Templemore, Tipperary, Ireland to London, Ontario, Canada in 1823. The John Rawlins Dann family migrated from London Township to Shiawassee County, Michigan in 1877.

Marsha Adams Thanks Barb, I knew you would know the whole story! And I had Alfred wrongly identified, gee. I will update my family tree maker with these new dates, thank you!

Elisabeth Mowen I just stumbled across you. I'm Ray John's great-granddaughter. This photo is great! I've never seen pictures of this side of the family. :)
