So Lois & her husband Lowell raced over to that farm that was south of the Westside/Arcadia area and grabbed the pictures.
Then in 2016, Lois told me this story and about those old pix so I grabbed them and scanned them.
Here are some pix from that family collection that are identified but most not identified by first names.
I can't remember why I don't have them identified as Lois surely would have known them, being her cousins and her age but I'm thinking I forgot to ask her for IDs with this particular bunch of pix...and now she is deceased so I can't go to her for help any more.
Henry Anthony and Emma Stammer
Emma (Stammer) and Henry Anthony
Back: Wilber Claus Anthony, Norma (Anthony) Lamaack - John and Emma's two children
Front: John William Anthony and wife, Emma Mathilda (Kuhl) Anthony
This picture was initially identified incorrectly in my database - Jim had the correct IDs...
This picture came from the Bernice (Mundt) Spiese collection I scanned in 2002.
She grew up in the same area northwest of Manning.
I asked her one day if she had old pictures I could scan - she said not really.
After she died we found tons of pictures, so again, I was never able to ask her for IDs.
Lyle Anthony, WWII - also in the Henry Anthony folder of scans I made in 2016
Merle was not in the military and I don't have Glen's obituary.
I've asked my other helper, Connie, to see if she can find his obit which might help.
Henry & Emma Anthony anniversary - I think in Saunders Steak House
Back: Connie Anthony, Emma (Stammer) and Henry Anthony
Jim Anthony and Jerry Anthony, Barbara and Steve Anthony (Merle's kids)
Connie, Jim, and Jerry are Lyle's kids
Missing is the youngest Anthony grandchild, Alan (Glen's son).
He would have been living in California and was only 18 months old at the time
The rest of the pictures below are also in the Henry Anthony folder
I assume 2 of the Anthony boys playing their Steel Guitars
I assume 2 of the Anthony boys
Probably an Anthony
Lavonne (Schnoor) & Lyle Anthony
Merle & Berdella (Farley) Anthony
I know I sound like a broken record, but this feature is just one of hundreds of collections I've worked on and tried to get IDs.
I also know that many of those collections I've scanned over the decades have been thrown away or in the case with these Anthony pictures probably were NOT "saved from the fire..."
So bring your old pix & history to me so they will get preserved and archived BEFORE it's too late!
