Lloyd McKenney as Child

A beautiful photo from 1909-1910 that shows ancestor Lloyd Clinton McKenney as a child, and a happy one at that. The photo would have been likely taken in Chautauqua County, Kansas, where the family lived. Lloyd was the son of James Albert McKenney and Vera Crockett.

Chautauqua School, Chautauqua, Kansas, circa 1907-1908

The photo is from “History of Chautauqua County” and is said to be the fifth and sixth grade classes at Chautauqua (Springs) School “probably about 1910”.

Photo of Mary Elizabeth Sparks McCormick Tripp with step-daughter

A photo of Mary Elizabeth Sparks McCormick Tripp, daughter of James E. Sparks and Carrie Burch, from Francis Partch. She has guessed that the girl with her is perhaps her step-daughter Nannie Tripp (b. 1886) or Dessie Mae Tripp (b. 1887) , daughters of James Preston Tripp and Jennie McWhirt. I’ve wondered if instead, based […]
