About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Kattie and Edd: 1940

Kattie and Edd: 1940

These are my maternal grandmother's maternal grandparents, Edd Hughes (1872-1952) and Kattie Isley (1883-1985). Circa 1940. They lived in Rockwall and Harrison counties in Texas from 1900 to the 1940s. Edd was a farmer and Kattie was a housewife. They had 10 children, 9 of whom lived to adulthood. They were members of the Mt Zion Baptist Church and lived near Waskom, Texas on the Louisiana border. Edd died in Longwood, Louisiana and Kattie died in Fort Worth, Texas.

Tough Lady

Kattie looks thin and not strong but ten children were born to her and she lived to 102 years old. That is a tough lady!
