I was given this photo by a distant cousin and told that J.L. Wells was a distant relative of mine and this store was supposedly in Meridian, MS.

Dennis Patrick O'Manning

Dennis Patrick O'Manning

Dennis Patrick O'Manning is my great-great grandfather. He was the first paternal ancestor of my father to live in America, probably emigrating from Ireland in the 1830s. The origin of the photo is unknown, but was likely taken in the 1880s. He apparently lived most of his life in Illinois.

Jennie Christa Power

Jennie Christa Power

Jennie was my grandmother. She was born Jennie Christa Butcher, in 1885, in Mound City, Kansas. She died in Prince Frederick, Maryland, in 1954. She was an accomplished cellist who played in symphony orchestras and vaudeville, mostly in Iowa. This photo was taken in the 1920s in Mason City, Iowa.

Pacific Highway

Pacific Highway

This is a postcard dated 1928 showing the Pacific Highway on the Calif.-Oregon border. Most likely Interstate 5 now. Looks like it's slow going on that gravel. No 65 mph on this road.

Drilling Crew

Drilling Crew

A drilling rig crew, likely from somewhere in the East Texas oilfield. Probably from the 1930s. There's nothing written on the back for me to identify it, sadly.

My Uncle

My Uncle

This is my great uncle probably in the 1930's, shortly before he left the Netherlands to move to the Dutch Indies. During the war he was kept in a Japanese camp and suffered greatly.

He was a pow and may have worked on the Burma railroad like my other greatuncle. He survived the war by some sort of miracle and so did his wife. They returned to the house they had built and lived in for years.

Indonesian nationalists came, my uncle came outside to see what they wanted. They shot the dog and then my uncle. As my uncle lay dying the Indonesian Nationalists wouldn't allow my aunt to go outside and help him or at least be with him as he died.
