Anna Jane Burchett Conn, her mother Julia Ann Jarrell Burchett and Julia's son, either Mermon, Richard or Soloman. Anna Jane was born in 1888, date of picture is a guesstimate, it could have been taken later than 1915.
Remaining siblings after funeral of oldest brother, Elvie, in Banner, KY, November 1987
Notes on back of picture, Irene age 7, Son age 5, Bug age 3. Children of Boss Neal and Julia Ann Sides Monroe.
Names on back of photo and date "1914" (?) Andrew J Monroe b between 1843-1847 in Texas, d in Texas, date unknown Wife, Louisa Eliza Harris b abt 1863 in Texas, d in Texas, date unknown. Young girl, standing is dauther Rosa J. born abt 1904 Young boy, on knee is grandson James Monroe (son of Julia Ann) Middle woman with baby girl on knee is daughter-in-law Julia Ann with her daughter Irene (Julia Ann was born 1898 in Alabama, daughter Etta Irene was born 1913 in TX) Baby boy on Louisa's lap is identified as "Baby Jake", son of Andrew and Louisa Eliza. It is possible, even probable, the baby on Louisa's lap is Sylvia Mona Monroe, born 1918 and not Jake. The written date is probably wrong, written years after the photo was made. The handwriting appears to be Julia Monroe's.
Boss Neal was born 16 Apr 1885 in Texas, died 1962, home was Artesia, NM Julia Ann, nee Betty Floyd Julian Sydes, born Nov 25, 1898 in Athens, Limestone Co., Alabama; died Aug 1978 in Carlsbad, NM. Actual date of photograph is unknown, 1918 is an approximation.
Family photo. Surname can also be found spelled Sides and Seitz. Photo taken in Lamar, TX. 1900 Census lists father's name as JNO H Sydes, date of birth July 1852. Family legend has Alice Bethunia born to Cherokee tribe in Alabama. No records have been found to verify this.

Mary Knight This tribute to a man's life brought tears and flashback to Dave and Annie Burchett Conn, my grandparents. These kind words could have been written about either/both of them, too. And my mother, Susan Conn Akers. I gain strength and comfort from their memory. May they all rest in peace. Mary Akers Knight Hannon
