Viola Sells Poultry

Chickens! It was fun to come across this ad of Viola Noyes Harmon selling chickens, especially as I have a photo of her niece, Pansy, feeding chickens, and another photo of a nephew beside a poultry incubator. The White Wyandottes that she specialized in had been standardized in 1888 and were popular in the 1890s […]

Lena Elizabeth Minor Cherry

The photo is of Lena Elizabeth Minor, who married R. Graham Cherry on August 1 1935. I’m assuming that her husband is the man sitting beside her on what looks like a pleasant summer evening. Lena was born August 1 1916 in Liberal, Missouri, the daughter of Cora Vera Noyes and John J. Minor. Cora […]

Dorothy Noyes McKenney and Pansy Noyes Bryant in Park

Candid shot, Dorothy Nadeen second from left and Pansy on the far right, daughters of Ray Noyes and Bettie Brewer Noyes. The other two women are unidentified. Spring or summer, all are in short sleeved, lightweight, print dresses, Pansy with a scarf about her head resting against a bench. Wind is blowing fiercely and perhaps […]

Atkinsons Railroad Gallery Photo

Tried photoshopping a little to bring out the woman’s face, but didn’t do much good Original courtesy of Nancy Benton. UPDATE: I believe this is thought that it could possibly be Emma Viola Noyes, sister of our ancestor, Ray Noyes. I believe Nancy Benton suggested this. If not, I wonder if it could be Cora […]

Ray Noyes Family Photo circa 1921-1922

This photo, circa 1921-1922, would be from Liberal, Missouri. Nancy Benton supplied the following identification. From left to right: O.E. Harmon; Viola Harmon; Edna Noyes; Jamie Noyes; Paul Noyes; Charles Bryant–Bettie Noyes in front of him and Mary Lou Noyes in front of Bettie; Ray Noyes with Lena Minor in front of him; Pansy Noyes […]

Dorothy Noyes McKenney in the 1940s

Courtesy Nancy Benton I added a little tint which brought out the fact Dorothy is in a field next to a railroad. The frame around the photo reads Elko and I’ve no idea to what that refers, if it is an old photo development place that I’m unable to locate any evidence of in an […]

James Allen Noyes and granddaughter Pansy

James Allen Noyes strolls with granddaughter Pansy Noyes, eldest child and daughter of Ray Noyes and Bettie Brewer. I’m guessing the photo is from about 1900 when Pansy would have been 5 years of age. James Allen would have been about 74. This photo would have been taken in Liberal, Barton County, Missouri.

Photo of Phillip Rowe, husband of Eliza Ann Noyes

Phillip Rowe, original, courtesy of Nancy Benton Yellow cast removed The photographer of the above photo was J. I. Kent at 18 (looks like) State Street in Rochester, New York. Phillips Rowe, b. abt. 1825 in New Jersey, was the husband of Eliza Ann Noyes, daughter of James Noyes and Rebecca Russell, Eliza being a […]

Elizabeth Noyes Lovett

Original photo courtesy of Nancy Benton. Attempt at some restoration Added a little color to see what the effect would be. This photo of Elizabeth, a daguerreotype, would have been taken somewhere in the late 1840s to about 1850. Perhaps it was made in 1848, at the time of her husband’s death. Or was it […]

Liberal, Missouri 1914 Fire Insurance Map

Missouri Digital Heritage has a 1914 Liberal Missouri Fire Insurance Map of the business district. It’s difficult to navigate as in the enlargement it doesn’t show the full map, only a small portion at a time, so I took one of the larger thumbnails, in which you can’t read the businesses, and enlarged that and […]
