Lorenzo and Rhoda (Kuykendall) Holmes

I've "rescued" an old photograph of Rhoda KUYKENDALL and her husband Lo HOLMES which was taken at the H. T. Biel Studio in Terre Haute, IN. The photograph was taken in the early 1900's with the couple appearing to be in their 30's at the time. In addition Rhoda is noted as the sister of Charles KUYKENDALL and "Dad's Sister". Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding this couple:

Rhoda May KUYKENDALL was b. 18 Nov 1871 in Dennison, IL to parents John KUYKENDALL (1844-1922) and Eliza Ellen NEWELL (b. 1850). Rhoda was one of 9 children born to this couple including, George W.; Sarah Elizabeth; Rhoda May; Cora I.; Charles Ezra; John Pleasant; Clarence Leonard; Mary L.; and Clifford Owen KUYKENDALL, all born between 1869 and 1890. Rhoda married Lorenzo “Low” Dow CHERRYHOLMES or HOLMES and they had one child, a son, Estel or Estal Vere HOLMES (1893-1963). Rhoda died 11 Sept 1932 in Dennison, IL and was buried in the Ferris Cemetery. At the time of her death her brother Charles was living in West Terre Haute, IN; brother John was in Harrisburg, IL; and Clifford was in Marshall, IL, with the others in Dennison, IL.

Sisters listed in her obit included, Mrs. Sarah SURVER and Mrs. Mary CREASEY both of West Terre Haute, IN.

I am hoping to locate someone from their family so that this wonderful old treasure can be returned to the care of family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me.
