Hiram and Aletha family. The tall boy in the back is Grandpa Clifford and the small boy on the right is Harley. The girls in front are Sarah on the left and Bertha in the middle. The girls in back are Maude and Esther, but I'm not sure which is which. Taken about 1890.
Family of Hiram and Aletha. In the back Harley is on the left and Clifford on the right. I think Bertha is in front between her parents, but I am not sure of the identity of the others.
Our great-great great grandparents, William Matheny and Elizabeth Everhart.
Family of William and Elizabeth. They are on the far right in front. I think Hiram is on the far left in front. I'm not sure who is who with the rest of them. Their names are (oldest to youngest): Mary Jane, George Leander, Hiram King, Simon Peter, Hannah Anne, Jesse Newton, William Andrew, Sarah Elizabeth and Minnie Orrilla.
That's all the pictures I have for now, brother of mine. Enjoy!
