Circa 1947-1948. Jack Kearns and Jean at a high school Valentine’s Dance in Mobile, Mobile, Alabama.

Dot, Selden, Mae and Jack Kearns, WWII Years

Middlin’ success photoshopping this one. Could have gone darker. Did a thoroughly annoying job on Dot’s skirt. Just wasn’t getting it right today. Selden served in Okinawa. I don’t know the date he entered the service. The photos would have been taken in Mobile, Alabama.

Photo of Murdock Middleton and Clarinda Simmons and family

Original image, a multiple generations xerox. Courtesy of Delores Tousineau. An attempt I made to clean up the image a bit. And then not leave well enough (kind of) alone, though the resolution doesn’t merit it. This family photo was made the same day as the above. No children were given but I’m going to […]

Photo of Alfred Crabtree, son of Littleton Crabtree and Rebecca Cox

Alfred R. Crabtree, son of Littleton and Rebecca Cox, was born 1822 March 11 in North Carolina. He died 1895 Feb 3 , Lee, Mississippi and is buried at Priceville Church. Ann Storer sent me this image of her ancestor Alfred, brother of Ervin Crabtree. She says it was originally a tinotype. I don’t have […]

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 […]

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. The face of one of the young women had been scratched out (it even looked as if it might have been deliberately scratched out) and I replaced it as the faces in that section are so undefined that there is no possibility of […]

First Restaurant owned by James Leon Hennesy

First Restaurant owned by James Leon Hennesy My attempt at restoration. Ethel Hennesy had written on the back of the photo that this was the first restaurant owned by James Leon Hennesy, the father of E. E. Hennesy. It was in Franklinton, Washington Parish, LA. James Leon stands behind the counter with Della Nobles Hennesy, […]

Photo of Zula, Jewel and Esmond Hennesy as children

Zula, Jewel and Esmond Hennesy Zula (1899-1925), Jewel (25 Oct 1901 – 9 Apr 1979) and Esmond (1 Jun 1903 – 24 Nov 1992) Hennesy as children in Washington Parish, LA. There was no indication on the photo of studio, photographer or date. Zula, in particular, looks pretty cute in her lovely dress, except they’re […]
