I've "rescued" an old photograph of Christina MISNER which was taken at the Nast Studio in Denver, CO. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1890's or early 1900's when Christina was about 9 years old.

I’ve “rescued” an old photograph of Stafena STEDAHAR of Crested Butte, CO which was taken about 1907-1908 at the Anderson Studio in Denver, CO. The spelling of both the first and last name are followed by a “?” on the back of the photograph. Stafena appears to be in her teens at the time the photograph was taken. Someone has also written “Mom’s friend” on the back of the photograph. I’m hoping to locate someone from this family, so that the photograph can be returned to their care.

I’ve “rescued” an old photograph of Joe WYNN which was taken at the P. D. Storm Studio in Denver, CO. The dates March 1898 and 18 Apr 1898 appear on the back of the photograph along with his name. I don’t know if the dates reference a range of him that Joe was someplace, attending a school maybe, or living in Colorado maybe, maybe he was staying with relatives there for that time, I just don’t know. Joe appears to be in his teens or 20’s at the time the photograph was taken. I’m hoping to locate someone from Joe’s family so that this wonderful old photograph can be returned to the care of his family. If you are a member of this family or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

A photo of John David Hargis. Front of a postcard --- Sent to his sister Hattie (Harriet) Hargis in Littleton, Colorado. From John in Hargisville, Elbert County, Colorado. John was the son of Zachariah John Beckham Hargis and Mary Ette Mackey. He was born November 4, 1885 (Missouri) and died April 10, 1910 (Colorado) buried in the Littleton Cemetery. I do not think he married, but I am not positive. (the date added is the postal date so the actual date of the photo is when it was taken and how ever long it took to process as a postcard then for John to give it to his brother Paris Hargis who was the postmaster at Hargisville).
