Walker, Brown, Shelton, Hicks, Tucker, Slaughter, Henry, Emerson, Watts, Schlotterer, Guttery, Goody, Bennett, Perdue, & Quick families

Contributor writes: "This photo was found in the Haskell Walker estate in 1991, Bixby, Tulsa Co. OK. (It) was taken around the last part of the 1800's. The place was probably Tate Co. MS or Sebastian Co. AR. Could possibly be Harvey & Martha Frances [Brown] Walker family. However, Harvey & Martha had only one known daughter and there are two in the photo. Ages of sons and one daughter appear to match those of the Harvey Walker family."

Contributor found the picture on this site and adds:
Haskell Walker was my father. In the photo are:
Row 1: Harvey D. Walker holding Cecil Richard Walker, Louisa (Lou) Walker; Martha Frances (Brown) Walker holding John Thomas Walker
Row 2: Uriah Jackson Walker, my grandfather; unidentified girl.

Your photo that shows, "Contributor writes: This photo was found in the Haskell Walker estate in 1991, Bixby, Tulsa Co. OK. . . ." Haskell Walker was my father. I have the original photo in my parents photo album.
In the photo are: Row 1: Harvey D. Walker holding Cecil Richard; Louisa (Lou) Walker; Martha Frances (Brown) Walker holding John Thomas Walker; Row 2: Uriah Jackson Walker, my grandfather; and unidentified girl.
I am please that you thought it worth of posting. Do you mind telling me who contributed it to your website?

Actually, it seems it was yourself back in 2001! in a roundabout way, as the picture is actually just hotlinked (not sure if that's the correct word) from the website where you contributed and wrote the writeup that you quote, yourself! LOL But it sound like you have more information now! Here's the link it came from: You might want to go back and update the entry there. I will add the names you gave to this site. Thank you so much for the information! I kind of wished it would be a new person that you could have compared notes and research with!

Thanks for visiting, Shari. The picture is beautiful.

Cowboy family from the 50s or early 60s.

I love this picture of a family with great big smiles!  I wonder whether this is their farm and their horse, or maybe they were city folk who wanted their family picture done on the farm.  I tend to believe the former because a picture on a dude ranch or friend's ranch would probably be with more obviously western clothing accessories and background. Forget the polo shirt!   I bought the picture on Ebay and have no information on the family or where this was found or taken.  Of course, if anyone recognizes them, please let me know!  I'm not familiar with the trees in the background.  Perhaps someone can tell me what they are and they will be a clue to the location.

As usual, click on the photo to see it full-size.  It is actually REALLY big so you may need to click on the enlarged picture another time if your browser sizes it to fit the page.

Two beautiful "found photos"

I first saw these photos on a blog called Celestial Charms.  When I asked permission to post them here the owner kindly said I could post any photo from her Flickr photostream!  Thank you so much, Maureen!

I'll start with the the two photos that I found at her blog post, Thoughts on Victorian Fashion.

As usual, please click on the photos to see them at their best.

First is a lovely photo of five little brothers from Canajoharie, New York. 

Next is one of the same five boys with their two sisters and their parents as well.   They look like a pretty well-to-do family, and with all those boys there must have been a fair bit of mischief going on.  And with the girls, even more.  I can say this as my family is almost exactly the same in make-up, though spread out in age more than this one.
See Maureen's thoughts about the fashion and dating of these photos here at Celestial Charms--Thoughts on Victorian Fashion.

Thank you, Maureen!

photophiles please ignore this post

Just adding some photos here for another purpose as I don't have a better place.
