This photo was tucked into the back of the Nettie Parks Album.
These are Nettie and Wesley Parks children. Gladys, Niel, MVP ( Mabel), Lyle and Glenn. I wonder if this is their house?
In the 1910 Census here is a list of the children:
Child Mabel Parks F 13y (1897)….about 10 years old in 1907
Child Glenn Parks M 11y…………….about 8 years old
Child Gladys Parks F 9y…………….about 6 years old
Child Lyle Parks M 7y……………….about 4 years old
Child Neal Parks M 5y………………about 2 years old
Child Thurston Parks M 3y
Child Wylma Parks F y 3m
So I will say that this photo dates to right around 1907. I would bet that MVP or Mabel labeled this photo..in fact I have been rethinking the statement that I made about Nettie writing in the album..it could have been Mabel or Gladys.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
Update from djsheri:
I have the same picture which was sent to my great-grandmother Emma Park Slagle from Elizabeth Cusick Park/s, grandmother of the above children. Elizabeth Cusick was wife of John Wesley Park Sr. My great-grandmother Emma Park Slagle was a sister to John Wesley Park. Sr.
