Wedding Wednesday: Daniel S. Jones (#1) and Nancy Brown

Daniel and Nancy (my great-great grandparents) were married in Schuyler County, Missouri on September 27, 1869.  Strangely enough, the only two “brick walls”  in my genealogy research come from  one parent each of Daniel and Nancy.  They spent the rest of their lives in Schuyler County and are buried there in Darby Cemetery.

I found this image on ancestry.com. I have been to Schuyler county several times as we still have family there but those were my pre-genealogy days. I will have to make sure to stop by the courthouse the next time we are there and get a look at the original.

Wordless Wednesday: The Family of Daniel Sydney Jones (#1)

So I use this photo as the cover photo for the blog and thought maybe I should tell you who it is.  I love a good family photo and this one has always stood out for me.  Probably because I am visually reminded that Daniel Jones (#2) is the only male of the family after the death of his father.

L to R: Daniel Sydney Jones, (#2) Nancy (Brown) Jones, Annie (Jones) Jackson, Elizabeth Emily (Jones) Brook, Mary Frances (Jones) Shepard, Jane Myrtle (Jones) Gibson, Bertha (Jones) Pottorff, and Grace (Jones) Jefferies.

This is the family of Daniel Sydney Jones (#1…According to my grandma, they were not Sr. and Jr.  They just had the same name so I refer to them as #1 and #2) at his funeral in February of 1916 in Schyuler County, Missouri .  This photo includes his wife and all of his living children.

Wordless Wednesday: Grandma Tallman and the Chickens

This is my Great-Great Grandmother Mary Elizabeth (Henderson) Tallman…not to be confused with her mother Mary Elizabeth (Atterberry) Henderson.

From what I have gathered, Mary Elizabeth wasn’t always the most pleasant person to be around and I think I can see this from this picture.  I still love it though.  It seems like it is a rare occasion to come across a picture from this time period that isn’t super staged but is more natural.
