About: we didn't know much about my grandmother's side and really would like to know some facts. Foote and Gassagne are the names we are looking into.

Researching: Miller, Foote, Gassagne

tin photo, girl has on plaid dress, has some sort of bracelet on right wrist, lace or crochet color and bottom of sleeve. Any info at all welcome. Plaid? Tin photos? The lace/crochet. I know it is most likely 1800's. May be able to somewhat guess who she is by decade knowledge.

This was found in my great grandmother's trunk. Is it her as a young girl? She was born in Calif. 1878. Her mother was half Native American and father was French. Can anyone shed any light? Thanks!

Possibly Maria & Elena Gassagne in the 1880's? This photo has a photography studio on the back of a place in Los Angeles, California. When I researched it was down the street from Elena's father's livery stable and during the correct time. I am assuming this is Mary and Elena. Mary was half Native American. Can anybody shed any light? Does anyone know why the child's head is shaved? Both were born in Los Angeles, CA. Photo taken around 1880's. Elena's father was Charles Gassagne and he had a livery stable on Main St. Any little tidbit would be gratefully received.

Claude Allen Foote was postmaster of the Sulphur, Kentucky post office. Not sure when. Early 1900's to 1920 possibly. (Looking for his family as we have no information as to his parents, brothers, sisters, etc. Only that he was born in Kentucky in the late 1800's.)

Jennie (Guthrie) Ainsworth and her second husband Charles Brooks. Jennie was born in the later 1800's. She married Marvel Ainsworth and they had several children. They moved from Wisconsin to Spokane, Washington and had a farm there.

Elena Murray Hi: do you happen to know what branch of the Guthrie family this photo is from?

Elena Murray Could be my grandfather. Probably not, hard to see them. He was a young man and was a longshoreman in San Francisco at that time. If not him, he may have known them. Thank you for posting the photo.
