Hi Pat,

Picture was taken in 1906 by D.N. Clauser, Havana, Il photographer. I believe the occasion was a family reunion. Lucinda Kirby Watkins lived to be 98, dying in 1907, in Atterbury, Menard County, Il.

Did any members of this family move to Alabama? I have members of my Watkins family that married into the Cannon and Davis families in Fayette and Tuscaloosa Co. Al.

Pat, do you know what Showalter Mary Jane was married to? Do you know the location of this photo?

This is to Kathy Dalton - the picture was certainly taken in Illinois - perhaps in Kilbourne, Illinois. My records show that Mary Jane Davis was married on 3/25/1885 to Joshua Showalter (b 10/28/1859, d 9/14/1937 in Kilbourne, Illinois).
