James Lang (with photo)

JAMES LANG This came from a good source, my grandpa Lang’s sister, Jessie, who swore that this was a photo of James Lang, father of William Perry Lang, father of Albert Winston Lang. The photo was very small and on a badge and looks from an earlier age than my grandfather. One of the cousins […]

The House in Natchez

The house that Esmond and Ethel Simmons Hennesy settled in finally in Natchez, Adams, Mississippi.

The House in Arkansas

The Washington Parish, Louisiana family of the Hennesys began branching out geographically in the 1930s. Esmond’s paper mill job took him to Lafayette, Ouachita, Arkansas. This is the house they lived in. I would imagine that at a later date someone returned and took a photo, and that this is not a photo from the […]

Annie Knight Simmons, 1904

Annie (Knight) Simmons (22 Feb 1888 – 1 Sept 1961) as a young woman. Wife of Lucius Theodore Simmons. Estimated date, around 1904. There was no indication of photographer or date on this very damaged photo. I am guessing it was taken perhaps on the same day she married Lucius at the home of her […]

E. E. Hennesy Before Car

Another photo of Ezzie Hennesy before a car. He is older than seen here, has shed the vest, has a skinnier tie, somewhat better fitting suit, but is still sporting a road cap. The car looks like a 1923 or 1924 Ford Model T Runabout, which has a very distinctive rear. It also looks like […]
