> Dear Kari,

> I asked Charles about getting a better copy of the oval photos page, but he seemed to think it wouldn't be possible. I will scan this one and send it to you ---he identified the people and he is not sure that his identifications are correct. If I can't do this by myself, I will have to wait until Dick gets home. Well, I had to send the photo and the accompanying letter from Charles (to Dick's dad) by HP instant share which is on our printer. I need to pay attention when Dick explains how to do it via attachment to email.
>
> I think that Charles is possibly wrong in his identification. He has the upper left lady identified as Rebecca, but I think the one in the middle on the bottom looks a lot older and thinner, and is probably Rebecca. That would make the upper left lady Henrietta Leamer Thompson. He has identified the others as follows: top middle, Eliza Jane Leamer King; upper right, Elizabeth Rebecca Leamer Dilling; middle left, Joseph S. L. Leamer; middle right, David Leamer; lower left, Delila (Delia) Leamer Thomas; and lower right, Martha M. (Mattie) Leamer Meister.
>
> I don't know who made up this collage or who may have it now. Maybe Charles can pursue that, but whoever gave him the copy may not still be alive. It sounds from the letter as if it was someone from his own family in Polo, MO. I have a handwritten copy of what I think is Rebecca's obituary and it says she is survived by eight children. There are only seven here. I don't have death dates for Sarah Ann or Rachel. I have a "status report" from Charles written in 1986 in which he says that Sarah Ann Leamer married George W. Langham in 1866, but at that time he had not been able to find Langhams in a census. He also says that Rachel married George L. Hackett on August 18, 1862 (from the Benton County Court House marriage record) and the 1870 Federal census showed them living near Blairstown, IA with children: Harrison Hackett (1866), John Hackett (1868) and Albert Hackett (1869 or 1870). One of the children must have died before Rebecca.
>
> Charles also sent a page of tiny proofs, one of which showed Rebecca with a small child on her lap, probably a grandchild. I don't know whether he has access to these photos in larger copies, but there are many old photos I would love to see larger and identify! Since Rebecca has her hair parted in the middle and pulled back in that photo, I am almost sure that the one in the lower middle on the collage is Rebecca.
>
> Maybe you have some other photos of these people so you can tell which is which and we can be more sure on the identification.

> Sincerely, Bobbie
