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.”
#24 Unidentified Children
These children were not identified on the back of this ca. 1900-1910 photograph. The photographer was L. A. Williams of Vienna, Illinois.
Lewis A. Williams was born 31 October 1849 in Tennessee. He married Eva W. [–?–] about 1876; per census, they did not have children. He worked as a wheelright in 1880 in Galatin, Saline County, IL; photographer in 1900 in Vienna, Johnson County, IL; proprietor of a studio in 1910 in Vienna; and as a bookkeeper in 1920 in Carrier Mills, Saline County, IL. He died 13 October 1920 in Carrier Mills.
Any guesses on who these children may have been or they could be identified?
