OF EXILDA LAPLANT NIX
of John & Mary Huard LaPlant|
This photo was taken
sometime after the death of Napoleon in 1905 and before Mary's death in 1915.
I think the ID's for this photo are:
Back Row - L-R Lula, Anna, Eddie, Minnie
Front Row - L-R Nellie, Mary, John & Emma.
by Bob Dyer had Emma & Nellie reversed, but Emma was almost 18 years older
than Nellie and I think the woman on the right (beside John) looks much older
than the one on the left (beside Mary). Missing is daughter Salina, who was living
in Nebraska in 1900 & 1910, and had moved to Illinois sometime between 1910-1920.
If the above ID's are correct, the girls start with Nellie (beside mother
Mary) and go clockwise around to Emma, in exact order from youngest to oldest.
Eddie is out of age order, but I think the photographer wanted him in the center
because he was the only son in the photo.
Sisters||Taken at the same time as the portrait of John
& Mary LaPlant family (women in both photos have on the same clothes). The
7th woman in the photo is probably daughter-in-law Jean Dean LaPlant, wife of
Eddie LaPlant. I do not think it is oldest daughter Salina, as she would have
been included in the portrait with parents John & Mary. I think the ID's for
this photo are: L-R Emma, Exilda, Nellie, Lula, Jean Dean LaPlant (sister-in-law),
Minnie & Anna.|
