Melinda's Photos

This is a tin type photo with no identification. Could be the parents of William Stokes Mitchell or the parents of Sarah Elizabeth Jones. It was with some Mitchell photographs found on the side of the road near Asher, Pottawatomie Co., OK. We'd like to return to this family. No identification is given on the back side of tin type. The photo has also been professionally painted over the tin type. It may have some Georgia (GA) ties.

This is either Lizzie Mitchell whose parents are William Stokes Mitchell and Sarah Elizabeth Jones or this is the wife of Arthur Mitchell named Sallie S. _______. (I believe its Arthur's wife, Sallie) This photo was with a group of Mitchell photo's found on the side of the road near Asher, Pottawatomie Co., OK. We'd like to return to the Mitchell family. There is nothing written on the back of this photo. The only identification came from other photo's of the same or similar girl in the other photo's in the envelope.

Written on the back was "My mother and fathers Wedding Picture" but the man is clearly Arthur Mitchell whose parents are William Stokes Mitchell and Sarah Elizabeth Jones. We found Arthur with a wife named Sallie in the census records. This photo was with a group of Mitchell photo's found on the side of the road near Asher, Pottawatomie Co., OK. We'd like to return to the Mitchell family. 1910 Pleasant twp., Butler Co., KS Arthur A.

While walking along highway 39 near Asher, Pottawatomie Co., Oklahoma, my mother, found an envelope full of very old photographs. They obviously had not been there long, she thought perhaps someone put them on top of their car and had forgotten about them before driving off. Our hopes were to locate descendants of these persons photographed and return them to their family members. Someone lost these photos and we wanted to return them. The photo is of Arthur Mitchell perhaps before he was married.

This photo was in an envelope full of some distant ADKINS' family photo's but I am clueless as to how these people are related to my Adkins family. Written on the back of photo is "Thelma Thomas, Grace & Jesse Whitfield made at Look Out Mt. near Chattanooga, Aug 17, 1947" I'm assuming this was in Tennessee.
