This church group was either in High Point, NC or Kernersville, NC. I've submitted it under both places, because it's not certain which place. The only two people who have been identified are Ida Coltrane Walker who is second from left on the bottom row. She was the wife of Mebane Walker, who was the manager of a hosiery mill in High Point although he lived in Kernersville. (Don't know if they were married yet when this picture was taken.) Vaden Hedrick was Ida's best friend, and is on the top row, last person on the right. Would love to know who all the rest of the people in the picture are.
This was a church group in Kernersville, NC., taken around 1918. Only two people in the picture have been identified. Second from left on the bottom is Ida Coltrane Walker, who became the wife of Mebane Walker. (Don't know if they were already married or not at the time). Vaden Hedrick is the last person on the right at the top. Other than that, everyone is a mystery. Would love for someone to identify them.
This is supposed to be a church group in Kernersville, NC. The only person identified is 2nd from left on the bottom, who is Ida Coltrane Walker. She was the wife of Mebane Walker. (Not sure if this is before or after her marriage.) Would love to know if anyone has any idea who the other people in the picture might be.
Rev. David Heaton Petree, son of Riley Frost and Oletha M. Helsabeck Petree originally of Stokes Co. NC. He married Roberta "Bert" Crews, who was a daughter of Rev. Rufus W. Crews of Forsyth Co. NC. In 1911, David moved his family from NC to Callahan, Fl., where he believed he could do better at farming because of the longer growing season. (He did well, as he expected.) David and Roberta had nine children. He died in 1940, and is buried in Jones Cemetery in Callahan, Fl.
Laura A. Crews(Oct.1872--Nov. 01, 1956) was born in Missouri to Joseph E. and Mary Ann McMillan Crews, who were natives of Stokes/Forsyth Cos. in North Carolina. Her family had gone to Missouri and stayed for a number of years, where she and some of her siblings were born. Her immediate family returned to NC after their home was supposedly destroyed by a tornado. Laura became a nurse, and worked at Salem Female Academy in Winston-Salem, NC, and also as a private nurse for the Willingham family. She never married. She is buried with many of her relatives at Red Bank Missionary Baptist Church in Forsyth Co. NC, not far from Germanton.
Young Joy Styers (Burton) and her brother Thomas Roy Styers, children of Thomas Jefferson and Mary Ellen Crews Styers of Guilford Co. NC. (Gethsemane Community). Thomas & Mary Ellen were natives of Forsyth Co., but came to Guilford Co. not long after their marriage. This was their two youngest children.
