I have an original 11” x 13” family photograph of Lyla Elzea Church and “the George Church Family”, which I’d like to get back to descendants or family members. Photo was taken in about 1915, in the yard, outside a home, and is identified as being taken in Ft. Wayne, IN.
In the photo are: “Parents, George and Annie; son Everett Franklin Church, and wife Lyla Fern Elzea Church, with daughter Frances Elzea Church”. Also “daughter Edith Church Clark, husband Fred Clark and daughters Verl, Berniece and Annie Jane”. Also “daughter Ruth and William Paul Church, unmarried”.
I found George and Annie in the 1900 census for Salt Creek (Jackson Co.) IN. George (Jan 1859 in NC) was a minister, age 41. Annie (Sep 1853 IN), age 36. Children Everett (Aug 1881), Edith (Oct 1884), Ruth (March 1893) and Paul (May 1897). In 1930, George (71) and Annie (67) were in Indianapolis and he was minister of the Nazarene Church. IN 1910, I found Ruth living with her sister Edith & Fred ClarkE in Indianapolis. In 1920, Everett, Leila and Frances lived in Indianapolis with his mother in law Priscilla Elzea. The Ft. Wayne connection comes from Fred & Edith Clark with their 3 girls who lived in Ft. Wayne in 1920.
