THE FAMILY OF EDGAR H. "ED" DYER & IDA MAY SEAMONS:
Thanks to Penny & Jim Dyer for the photos of Herman Dyer and his family. Also thanks to Tom Bruce for the photos of the children of Lee O. Dyer.

Edgar & Ida DyerEdgar H. Dyer and Ida May Seamans were married about 1898, probably in Missouri. They had 4 sons: Lee, Roy, Herman & Samuel.
Herman DyerThird son of Edgar & Ida. Herman was born on December 6, 1904, so guessing about 1905
Lee, Roy & Herman DyerI'm guessing the photo was taken about 1906, which would make Lee age 8, Roy age 5 and Herman age 2. I'm not sure where it was taken - the family is on the 1900 census of Mt. Vernon, Lawrence Co., MO, but in 1907 Lee is listed at age 8 on the school census of Canon City, Fremont Co., CO.
Ida Dyer & Sons Lee, Roy, Herman & SamuelSamuel was born about 1910, so photo was taken about 1911. The family is had returned to MO and were listed on the 1910 census of Mt. Vernon, Lawrence Co., MO, but by 1920 they were back in Colorado and were listed on the 1920 census of Canon City, Fremont Co., CO. They were in Lawrence Co., MO in 1923, but were in Tucson, Pima Co., AZ in 1930 & 1933. Boys oldest to youngest are Lee, Roy, Herman & Samuel.
Edgar & Ida DyerMaybe taken about 1930 in Tucson, AZ??

Mary Frances Dyer graduationMary Frances Dyer was the daughter of Lee O. Dyer, and granddaughter of Edgar & Ida. Graduation was probably about 1939 or 1940 in Canon City, Fremont Co., CO. Her parents divorced when she was young, and she and her siblings were raised by their mother.

Ed, Ida, & grandson James DyerJames was the son of Herman Dyer, and grandson of Edgar & Ida Dyer. James was born in 1940 and Edgar died about 1943, so maybe photo was taken about 1942?
