I have a picture from 1917-1924 timeframe entitled "A sad day at the house of Miss Nola Stephens" which I interpret to be a funeral. It pictures Nola and my grandparents (probably not yet wed) Flenor Heath and Nannie Freeman as well as a number of other people.
If anyone wants to see the picture I will be glad to email-
Brad in Columbus, OH
Hi, I would like to have an email copy of the picture you have of Nola Stephens and others. Thanks, anna
I am searching for information on my g.g.g.g. aunt Edith Robertson/Robison/Robinson from Whitley & Wayn Co.KY. She died at 102 in the home of Absolom Stevens, born abt 1857. Father born in VA and mother in NC. He was married to Abbie G. b. abt. 1861. I believe Edith may have been a Stephens at one time and Absolom her son. Edith's maiden name is Bryant. Absolom had a brother James W. b. abt. 1860 who was blind. Any help appreciated. Jackie
