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: 1900 census of St. Louis, MO: Emma THOMAS, age 40, born Apr 1860, a widow, 4 children/4 living, born KY, parents born England/NY Nellie THOMAS, dau, age 21, born May 1880, born IN, parents born Canada/KY, an Actress Albert D. THOMAS, son, age 16, born Jan 1884, born MI, parents born Canada/KY, a Clerk Emma B. THOMAS, dau, age 9, born Jul 1890, born CA, parents born Canada/KY, at School 1910 census of Detroit, MI: Emma THOMAS, age 46, a widow, 4 children/3 living, born KY, parents born England/NY Albert D. THOMAS, son, age 25, married 7 years, born MI, parents born Canada/KY, a Brass Locks Salesman Maud THOMAS, dau-in-law, age 25, 1 child/none living, married 7 years, born IL, parents born NJ Bernice THOMAS, dau, age 18, born CA, parents born Canada/KY, a Confectionery Saleslady Nellie REDNER, dau, age 27, married 8 years, 1 child/1 living, born IN, parents born Canada/KY, a Stage Actress Frank L. REDNER, son-in-law, age 36, married 8 years, born MI, parents born NY/MI, a Stage Actor Frank A. REDNER, grandson, age 6, born MI 1920 census of Detroit, MI: Frank REDNER, age 42 Nellie REDNER, wife, age 37 Frank A. REDNER, son, age 16 1930 census of Detroit, MI: Frank REDNER, age 25, born MI, parents born MI/IN, an Advertising Artist Nellie REDNER, mother, age 49, divorced, bonr IN, parents born MI/KY 1940 census of Detroit, MI: Nellie REDNER, age 60, divorced, born IN Frank REDNER, son, age 36, born MI, a Commercial Motor Corp. Artist I'm hoping to locate someone from this family so that these wonderful old photographs 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. Thanks, Shelley

This is a school photo I bought from Ebay in the US. What lovely faces! All of the children's names are on the back in clear adult hand, and I've listed them below (click on arrow), front row first, l-r, then 2nd row, etc. Also 9 names are written sideways in a child's hand and spelling, and all those names are repeated in the larger list except "Irene Branden". 21 of the children have pencil or pen Xs on them; not all Xs are visible in the scan. One detail I think is striking is the one non-Caucasian or mixed-race student (Mary Rhinehart). I'm Canadian and not an expert on American racial history so I don't know if this is that unusual for this era of history, or perhaps a clue to the country or area. These children are not relatives of mine and I am not researching any of these names. Another member commented below to say that s/he may have found some of the children in the 1910 census. The Ebay seller had no further information on where it was from. I would be thrilled to hear if you have information to share with me or if you have or might have found a family member here, but I don't know what school this is or where the photo was taken, or even exactly when (though I guess from 1900-1920, because of the big bows and very few short bobs, etc), so I can't give any more information on that. Check the comments below the names to see other members' thoughts. It's a beautiful photo and I hope it helps with your research.
