LINCOLN COUNTY MYSTERIES--ARE THESE YOUR RELATIVES?


UNIDENTIFIED PHOTOGRAPHS
I purchased these photographs on ebay when it became apparent no one else was going to. I'm hoping someone will recognize and claim them as their ancestors! You may contact me (a link to my email is at the bottom of the page) with information or to claim these photographs. All are in very good shape and deserve a good home!

Photo of a child
This is a photo of what appears to be a small boy in a christening gown. The photo was taken by "Phegley & Strout, Lincoln, Kan." George Phegley was a photographer in Lincoln from 1911 until his death in 1942.

Photo of four children
This is a photo of four children. The back is stamped "U.S. & G.L. Davis, Lincoln, Kas". I do not have dates on when the Davises ran a photography studio.

Photo of two woman in fancy hats
This photo is owned by Cheryl Lepisto, who wonders if anyone recognizes either of the women.

Photo of Mattie Hiserman
This photo is also owned by Cheryl Lepisto, who wonders if anyone is related to Mattie. If you know more about Mattie, you can contact Tracee through the link below and she'll help put you in touch with Cheryl.

Yet another Hutchison portrait.

Photo of a man with wavy hair
This photo was taken by W.A. White of Wilson, Kas. It could certainly be of someone from Wilson but also could be a Sylvan Grove subject.

MYSTERY SOLVED! This photo, taken by Hutchison, is of John Clayton Roush and Harriet Rosella Davis, who were married 3 January 1894.
