This is a spin-off of my 52 Ancestors: #14 Albert Spencer LILLIE (1848-1913) ~ Old Photographs Saved From Trash Can blogpost in which I featured a few photos from a collection of old photographs my 4C1R Joe Rooney shared with me. I asked Joe about using the photos and he kindly wrote, “Please use them at your will. I feel it is keeping it in the family and don’t need credit. If anything, I appreciate your evaluations, identifications, and detective work. I’m hopeful you and yours enjoy them. On a blog, in a book, above a cloud.”
The collection of photographs scanned by Joe Rooney does not include a photograph of Albert Spencer LILLIE’s wife Pernecia Elizabeth GLASS (1852-1899). Pernecia was the daughter of Green B. GLASS (1820-1897) and his wife Rebecca NICHOLS (1824-1875). There are several photographs labeled with the surname GLASS. I will begin with Albert Spencer LILLIE’s father-in-law:
Green B. GLASS (1820-1897)
There were two photographs identified as Greene B. GLASS, born 20 February 1820 and died 11 February 1897. The oldest being this tintype:
On the back “Lyon Glass” and “Father Greenberry Glass” was written in two different handwritings.
The second photograph of Green B. GLASS also has information from two different persons and confirms that this is the man of that name who died in 1897. Find A Grave
Uncle Lyon mentioned on the back of this photo was the brother of Albert Spencer LILLIE’s wife Pernecia. His full name was Green Berry Lyon GLASS (1864-1933) and he will be featured in the next installment.
Joe Rooney kindly gave me permission to use these photographs on my blog.
