"Name that Person"

These photos are likely related to the Greeney Family from Williamson County Illinois. 
There might also be members of the Culbreath or Culbreth Families, Clarida or Clariday Families, or Burns Families with ties to the same area.


Culbreath's were present in the area in 1839


Photo Number 1 was possibly taken during the 1920s-30s and appears to contain some of the same people as Photo Number 2.  I've tried to match the people in the two photos in the head shot section following.

(These may take a bit to load, they are large for clarity.)

Can you help identify anyone shown?

The following photo quality is not the best so they have been enlarge.  Yet all the individual facial details may not be apparent. 

Note: 

  • This branch of the Greeney family often have cleft chins.
  • Children may have straight fine hair, but as adults thick and curly. 
  • Men may bald early. 
  • Thick legs and ankles may also be present - note Photo #2.
  • Family members sometimes are called by their middle names rather than their given first names.


Photo #1 - Name the people, when and where it was taken.  Could it have been at a Family Reunion?
