So much going on in real life that the time to work on photo blogs like I truly want to is scarce. So I just havent had time to work on themes although I would love too! I also got 2 packages in the mail! My mother met someone online doing family history research who had some old photos she didnt know what to do with and sent them all to me! 2 packages chock full of old photos! She just gave them to me! I opened them up and my allergies were really set off, to the point I almost felt sick that night, so I dont want to handle them again yet. Need to air them out and wipe them down really good, and there are some fabulous large photos in this batch, so I cant wait to get a blog up about them and the info the woman gave me to start with so we do have a starting point and names to go along with them but dont know who these people are but we do know who had them in their possession. So look for that in the near future.
This is a photo I got out of an Arizona Antique store, its a large one, close to 8 x 10. It is also quite faded. I have always loved old home photos. And Ive written down what was contained on the back. Havent done a lot of detective work on this or came up with very little when I worked on it awhile ago. But hopefully it will attract a relative somewhere!
Back of Photo reads “Battle Creek, Iowa. Mr. and Mrs. John S. Peffer residence. Edwin F. Peffer, Dog Sport” (hard to see, Dog is on far right next to guy with horse carriage)
In the 1900 Census there is a John S Peffer who is listed as a widow. Not sure if this is the right one but putting up the info hoping to connect the puzzle pieces. Children are named
Edwin F. Peffer
Mary E. Peffer
