I purchased two old pictures of an Oby family (not related to me) in a thrift store in Spokane, Washington.

One of the pictures, taken about 1900, is of Ulrich Oby (1847-1911), his wife Elisa Marti (1852- ?), and their children Earnest G., Eliza, Herman J., Walter, Lena and Charles. All were born in Switzerland and came to America in 1889. All are identified on the back.

The second is of a 1923 Business College class (apparently in Minnesota) in which Irene Oby is identified. She was a daughter of Earnest.

I've also gathered some information about the family from census records and the like, and created a small Oby file in Family TreeMaker.

I would be glad to share these.

I hate to see old pictures go unclaimed. I'm wondering how they came to be in Spokane; there are no Obys in our phone book.
