This photo found its way home recently!
James sent me an email.
James was my 3rd great grandfather, the couple might be John White and Lucy White Frankenberry. The young man on the fence post with dog might be Earl White my Great Granfather. James was born in 1818 and died 1910 at the age of 92. His first wife was Anna Wolfe who died in 1884, he married a second time a Lottie Reed who died in 1906.
And a little more info!

James also wrote “Thanks, yes I received the photo.”
I am always happy to send photos home.
Thanks for stopping by. Do come again:)
I always marvel at what someone like Mr. Frankenberry lived through - in his lifetime, he saw the invention of the telegraph, the telephone, the automobile, the airplane, electric lights, and even the ice maker.ReplyDelete
