The Mystery

This photo came from Rhode Island. From an estate sale in Providence. There are about 20/25 photos of this family. A very generous young lady from the Tulsa, OK. flea market gave these to me for just this reason; to find their family and home. I have done some research on this family, very interesting. I found "Baby Everill "Christened in Sept. 1919, and she was named for her Grandmother: Everill TAYLOR from England. Parents are Herbert and Rose TAYLOR. Who are her descendents? She has a sister, Arline TAYLOR (WIGGINS).

Kyle Carson Dear Jean, I have been looking into the Mowry family of Providence for my work, and recently saw Percy Mowry as legatee in an aunt's will! I googled him, and up popped your estate sale find.
I have located a family called Buffum, one of which was a Mowry in-law, but have not succeeded in finding any living descendants of Percy.
Would you be interested in parting with some of these photos, either giving / selling to descendants if I find some, or selling to me if I don't? These genealogy searches are so involved one almost feels these long-ago strangers have become friends!
Best Regards, Kyle Carson
