I have an original 8”x10” photograph of “John D. Penland and his (17) grandsons”, including the five Shipp boys, which I’d like to get back to descendants or family members. “Grandpa Penland” looks to be about 70-75, and the children are down to a baby he is holding in his lap. Photo was taken in front of a porch, and Grandpa is holding “Claud (Clyde) Shipp” and “Willard Rogers”.
The names, identified in rows on the back of the photo (with dates of birth I have inserted, from my research): WILCOX, Logan (1896), Grant (1899), Erastus (1908), Roscoe (1911) and “Pardella”; - DAWSON, Emmett (1894), Lawrence (1896) and Oren (1900); - SHIPP, Homer (1896), Walter (1901), Clarence (1903), Carl (1907) and Clyde (1914); - ROGERS, John (1899), Frank (1902), Erskine (1905) and Willard (1916). John Dwight Penland’s daughters were Mary, who married Erastus Wilcox; Julie, who married Albert Dawson; Cora, who married John Shipp; and Thursey, who married Joseph Patrick Rogers.
