Hi Bierly Researchers. I am NOT a researcher of this family; However, today I purchased two clearly labeled photos of young men in military uniform. One is labeled Leonard Bierly, the other Donald Bierly. Both men are posing for their military photo, Leonard is clearly a Marine and is the older looking of the two--still only later teens or early twenties for both. Donald is possibly Army, his hat insignia is blurred, he is wearing glasses.
My hobby is to purchase inexpensive, well marked photos and try to return them to descendants. These two are very well marked, very clear (Leo's is of slightly better quality), and framed in the cardboard style of their day. I would place the ages of the photos to be early 1900s, but I am not an expert.
If you have a connection, would like to possess these photos, Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and I will arrange to mail these to you. I do not charge for this hobby, donations are not required, etc. As a researcher of BIBLER and CARRINGTON families of Ohio, I appreciate finding nuggets of gold amid all the brass...
