Jean Hennesy Kearns’ Sunday School Class in Camden

Annie Jean Hennesy Kearns, daughter of Esmond and Ethel Hennesy, has given this as a Sunday school class photo in Camden, Ouachita, Arkansas. She is 4th from the left, the girl smiling with her hands clasped over her chest, and looks absolutely delighted with the photo shoot. This is a photo taken after an Easter […]

Fannie Lee “Cooter” Simmons, daughter of Lucius Theodore Simmons and Annie Clarinda Knight, was born 1920 March 8 in Louisiana. She married Fernie Foil. The cardboard frame of the photo reads: Art Studio, Bogalusa, Louisiana

Jewel Hennesy’s Obituary

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 […]

Photo of E. E. and Ethel Hennesy circa 1936

There are enough images of Esmond Hennesy beside cars that I’m inclined to think he must have been fairly fond of autos. This time he’s with his wife Ethel and he looks cockily dressed to the nines with a fancy hat and tie and striped socks. Perhaps they were out for a Sunday drive. I’ve […]

Photo of Annie Knight Simmons and…

This photo was originally identified by family to show Annie Knight Simmons and the widow of Desera Simmons, Rosa Lee, at his gravesite at the Lang-Simmons Cemetery. I have to place a caveat with the original dating of this photo which would have been 1932, at the time of Desera’ death. Annie Knight would have […]
