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.”
#23 Frances “Fannie” WELLS 1892-1975
Frances “Fannie” WELLS was the daughter of Charles Thomas “Tom” WELLS and Mathilda “Tillie” ROYALTY. Her mother Tillie was the sister of Florence ROYALTY who collected most of these wonderful old photographs. Florence and Fannie appear to have had a special relationship as Florence saved many photographs of Fannie from the time she was a little girl until she was married and had her own little ones.
Mabel SUTHERLAND was the daughter of John A. SUTHERLAND and Susan Catherine “Kate” WELLS, the sister of Tom WELLS.
