Photo of Lucinda Pounds Hennesy

Lucinda (Pounds) Hennesy as young woman, 2nd wife of James Leon Hennesy. There is no date on the photo and from the attire I’m assuming it’s about 1910 to 1914. My attempt at livening up the photo with a touch of color. The picture’s jacket frame reads on the front: Stanton Photo Co., Springfield, Ohio. […]

Photo of James Leon Hennesy and Lucy Virginia (Myles)

Original photo. Black and white restoration. Colored restoration. Now this colored restoration I think worked very well. I like how it glows and I think it does bring them to life a bit. James Leon Hennesy (4 May 1873 – 1938) and Lucy Virginia Myles Hennesy (abt 1871 Jan 28 to 22 July 1906) married […]

James Leon Hennesy’s store

James Leon Hennesy’s store in Washington Parish, Louisiana. Original photo. My restoration.

Jewel Hennesy (with photo circa 1920s)

Original. Photoshopped. Intention with this restoration was just to bring out Jewel as much as possible, not rebuilding the scene. There was no note of date so I’m estimating the photographer caught Jewel lounging in the Washington Parish grass some time during the 1920s. Jewel HENNESY, the 1st son and 2nd child of James Leon […]
