This group photo was taken prior to 1923. The only 2 people I can identify are Frances (Bailey) Tuggey (1846-1924) and her husband Joseph Baber Tuggey, Sr (1847-1923). Frances is on the far left and Joseph is the gentleman next to her with the muttonchops. I've sent this off to a cousin who may be able to ID more of the people here, but any help in the meantime would be appreciated.

Somewhat of a "Before and After" combination photo. Below is a studio portrait of Joseph and Emma around the time of their 1869 marriage in Oswego, New York. Above shows them in the yard of their home in Springfield Mass around 1920 where they moved after living in Enfield Mass. Enfield was literally torn down along with 3 other communities to build the massive Quabbin Reservoir which supplies water to the City of Boston and a few other communities.

Henry Wright Dunn was a prominent a successful business man in Conecuh County. He owned Evergreen Motor Car Company and was the local dealer for both Ford and Buick. During the influenza pandemic of 1918, Henry was driving out of town to pick up a nurse who was to stay with the family in case the illness struck in their home. Henry's car stalled and rolled backward intot he oncoming L&N train. He died 2 days later of his injuries. This photo is reportedly of his wrecked car.

This photo of my grandfather (standing left with 2 of his friends) was taken just a short while before he went to his truck to "take a nap" as he felt tired. He was actually having a heart attack and succumbed before help could arrive.

Dave Robison The White's that you mention are cousins of mine. Peregrine married Sarah Bassett, my 8th great grand aunt. Her father was William Bassett who arrived in 1621 aboard the Fortune. I have a volume on the White family written in 1895 by Thomas and Samuel White titled "Ancestral Chronological Record of the William White Family From 1607-8 to 1895". It contains a great deal of information but much of it is poorly organized. There are even quite a few sections that seem to be contradictory. To make matters worse, there is no index in the book itself! Fortunately, someone wrote a separate index which simplifies the issues somewhat. So, I may be able to provide a great deal of information for you, but it would help me a great deal if you could give me some dates of birth, given the difficulty of working with this volume. You can contact me directly at drr45@msn.com or reply at the site. I don't regularly check this site, but I believe I'll get an e-mail message if you reply here. Thanks, Dave Robison PS I volunteer regularly at the Connecticut Valley Historical Museum. We are currently uploading burials to Find-A-Grave from as many of the local cemeteries as possible. We've listed 3 "James White" burials. One at the Springfield Cemetery, another at St Benedict's and a third at Oak Grove Cemetery all in Springfield, MA. Take a look at www.findagrave.com.
