Description:
I've "rescued" two old photographs belonging to the THOMAS Family of St. Louis, Missouri. The first is one of James, Albert D., and Nellie THOMAS which was taken at the Strauss Studio in St. Louis. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1880's with the three children appearing to be about 2-8 years old at the time.

On the back of the photograph along with their names it says that they are the children of Albert D. THOMAS and Emma Roseline THOMAS (nee STECLE). The birthdays for each are noted as James Nov 01; Albert Jan 06; and Nellie May 27; and not shown in the photo is Emma Bernice b. Jul 19 who was not born at the time of this photograph.

The second photograph is one of Albert Daniel THOMAS Jr. which was taken at the same studio in St. Louis, MO sometime in the 1880's with Albert appearing to be about 4 years old at the time it was taken.

Based on limited research I was able to locate the following census records for this family:

His curls, the velvet "dress", the lace, the shoes - but most of all his face. How adorable!
