About: I collect (for personal interest and love, not profit) old photos, firstly of families, especially large families, and secondarily of children, groups of siblings, etc. I am also very interested in family histories. I want to share some of the pictures that I have that have names to them, in the hopes they might fill in some missing pieces for unknown family researchers.

Natalia's Photos

I purchased this photo on Ebay. This may be (seems probable to me) a picture of the wife and son of evangelist Percy Crawford, of whom and of whose family quite a bit of information may be found online. My first thought was that the father was away at war at the time of his son's birth due to his photo there, and the date. However I couldn't find a reference to Percy's war service in my cursory online searches.

This is the back of the photo postcard that is already posted under this surname. Please see that photo for more information.

This photo was purchased in early 2010 from Ebay. The back says "Endlich family" but there are no individual names of the family. In the 'send to' section is the name Mrs. Mary Brown, evidently a friend or relative of the family. I am posting a scan of the back separately. I asked the seller for any info and she wrote that she got the photo from a woman who lived in Mosier, Oregon whe went to auctions and estate sales in the area where this would have been in a box of odd papers. "But unfortunately photos are often sent to relatives so this may be from another state." I just want the picture to be available online for Endlich family researchers, and I hope someone will find it helpful. I also entered the photo on Rootsweb.

I purchased this photo from Ebay. It's a photo postcard, given from Evangeline Huling to Carrie B. Fox. I have no further information about the photo's history! This is a close-up of the family in my other entry for this family, Huling family home.

I have made the photo large for detail. To see it better, enlarge it, then right-click and choose 'open in new window'. I will also enter a close-up of the family as a different entry - hopefully that will help too.

On the back of the photo is handwritten "Chas. & Maude Wyrick" and it looks like it may be their wedding photo! No locations or photographers are identified. This is the only information I have specifically about this photo. I purchased this in a huge lot of photos from Ebay. They have no traceable history as the seller got them from someone who checks the dumpsters behind estate sales around several states in the midwest! I can only list what is on the individual photos themselves as they all came from different places. That's why I'm posting as many photos as I can, so any more of their history isn't lost. I would be interested to know if they help any family researchers though.

Natalia Unknown I posted this photo on my blog and had a comment from an "MI" about it that said that this photo "is of my grandparents. The boy and girl seated are my dad (Merle) and his twin sister (Pearl). Standing in the back are my uncles l-r, Max, Wayne, Archie, Louis Jr." Merle later married someone surnamed Skoruppa. MI has not commented here so I thought I would post the information he or she shared.

Natalia Unknown I wish you the best in your search! I have no information, but wanted to mention that you didn't say a date or year for the adoption. It may help if you added that. Best wishes!

Natalia Unknown Update: Bitahvn, the seller did not have any more info on the location, so we are still guessing. Ritastory, I am guessing on the dates, thanks for the comment. I checked the original photo and there are Xs on 21 of the children, just not all are visible on the scan, only from an angle. To anyone interested, someone wrote me saying that his uncle's father was a George Mays from Kentucky.

Natalia Unknown Do you know if these are all siblings, or include inlaws, nieces, nephews, or the parents of the family? Thanks!

Natalia Unknown Thanks for sharing these lovely memories of your grandparents - what wonderful people, you must miss them very much. Your write-up touched me so I had to write!

Natalia Unknown I would guess these two were brother and sister, judging from their facial resemblance, similarity of age, and lack of wedding rings. Just my humble opinion.
