PHILLIPSBURG, MO SCHOOL 1920

This photo was sent to me by Ron Turner of Missouri.  It shows the Phillipsburg, Missouri School in 1920.  Note all the flags!  Ron’s father, Woodson Senn Turner, is sitting on the ground, fourth from the right.  He believes my cousin, Leslie McMenus, is sitting seventh from the right, but I cannot tell if it is Leslie or not.  Most of the other McMenus cousins who lived in the town were out of school by this time, but I am sure there are relatives there somewhere.  Warren and Billy McMenus were in school in 1920, and it may be Warren holding the flag at the top right in overalls, but again, not sure.   My mother’s  family lived west of Phillipsburg and went to the Union School, so they are not in this photo.  Thanks to Ron Turner for sending it.

UNKNOWN CHURCH GROUP – Laclede County, Missouri circa 1910-1912

023

UPDATE 10-13-18:  Here is the photo with four Senn family members identified and we have determined that this is probably the Phillipsburg Methodist Church congregation:

NOTE 9-24-2018:  Since I am posting other Senn/Turner family information as it relates to Laclede County, Missouri and the Phillipsburg/Conway area, I am reposting this earlier entry today.  Read to the bottom for more information on who is in the photo.

NOTE 9-21-17:  See comments at the bottom of the page for an update on some of the people in the photo.  I do believe that this photo came from the Moore side of Aunt Mag’s family, as I have now pretty much confirmed that they were members of the Phillipsburg Methodist Church.  And a Senn/Turner descendant has identified (see below) Christian Senn and his daughter Iva.  Thank you for the information, Ron!  The man in the photo is definitely not Mr. Moore but Mr. Senn!  And I would suspect that this is a Phillipsburg Missouri Methodist Church congregation group photo!

This is is another photo given to me by my second cousin, Stormye Harrill Barnett.  She did not recognize anyone in the photo, and it has been a quandary to me for years.  It looks to be a church group rather than a school group, but no McMenus cousins appear in the photo.  The only possibility is that it came from the Moore side of the family, Stormye’s grandmother being Margaret Moore McMenus (Aunt Mag).  The man in the back row on the left end resembles Aunt Mag’s father, but I believe he attended the Cumberland Presbyterian Church as he appears in the Cumberland congregation photo taken about 1908.  I have taken the two insets and put them below.  Same man?

MISSOURI CHURCH CONGREGATION DINNER – About 1895

001

UPDATE 10-13-18:  Here is some information from Ron Turner regarding one or two people in this photo, so I am updating and reposting, from Ron:

I believe Iva Senn is the girl fourth from the left standing next to the one in the plaid dress in the group of children on the right side. Iva would have been 7 years old. I cannot identify other Senns, but I believe CL may be one of the men with a dark mustache.  He was not tall, in fact he was shorter than Annie. My dad said when cL walked with Annie, he took 2 strides to her one just to keep up.
==============================================================================================================================

This is another photo that came from my great aunt, Anna L. McMenus Forkner Tweddell.  Click on the photo to see a larger version.  It is clearly a church dinner group, taken about 1893.  It is most likely the Cumberland Presbyterian Church congregation of Phillipsburg, Missouri, but since Aunt Annie and family lived in Conway, it could be another group also.  I have put insets below, and I think the one of Aunt Annie and husband, Lon Forkner, also has her mother, Rebecca Frances Smith McMenus, seated in front of her, but the image is not clear.  And if it is Aunt Frank (as she was known), then where is her husband?  The man standing on the right end looks like Annie’s uncle, her father’s brother, Eli McMenus, who did live near Conway.  The man in the back row toward the left with the dark moustache looks like Mr. Moore, the father of Margaret Moore, who went on to marry John McMenus, a decade later.  But the photo was taken at too great a distance to know for sure.  Even if Aunt Annie and family usually went to church in Conway, it was not unusual for families to visit other churches on Sunday.  So this photo is a mystery except for Aunt Annie and her family.  Daughter Ethyl appears to be missing from the photo.  The other three kids are accounted for.

001aThis photo inset is of Aunt Annie’s daughter, Ednah.

007bbbThis is Aunt Annie with husband, Lon Forkner, behind her on the right in the striped tie.  I believe her mother is seated in front of her in the dark dress, Rebecca Frances “Aunt Frank” Smith McMenus.

007bbThis is Aunt Annie’s oldest son, Oscar Forkner.

007bbbbThis is Little Ray, or Raymond Irl Forkner, the youngest child of Annie and Lon Forkner.  There were not many photos taken of him as he died in 1900 at the age of nearly 8 probably from pneumonia, and he appears to be about 2 or 3 here, so that is how I have dated the photo to  about 1895.

Have not been able to identify daughter Ethyl in the photo.

PACK SCHOOL near CONWAY, MISSOURI 1926

UPDATE 10/10/18:  More information on those in the photo.  In addition to what is below:  First row, left ro right, seated, Luther Letterman, Leonard Payne, Frank Stever and John Graham.  Second row, left ro right, Durward Wilhite, Cecil Long, Charles Ferrier, Raymond Day, Reba Harvey, Mildred Letterman, Inez Haymes, Nora Daugherty, Junior King, Blanche Daugherty, Iva Pack, Ira Letterman and Leon Davidson.  Third row, Gladys Graham, Ralph Stever, Bernard Daugherty, Iris Forgey, Evelyn Robinson, Murtle Payne, Alice King and Audie Pack.  Fourth row, Mary Ann Ferrier, Ray Marlin, Edward Stever, Ulysses Young, Hallie Day and the last one on the right is unidentified girl.

=============================================================================

As I’ve mentioned before, the Pack School west of Conway served three counties.  Students from Laclede, Dallas and Webster Counties seem to have gone there due to its location near the point where the counties come together.  This photo was taken in 1926.

The teacher was Fred Cowan, he is standing at the top right.  My father, Ray Marlin, is second from the left end of the top row (see inset below).  His cousin, Mary Ann Ferrier, is standing next to him on the end (also see inset).  Their cousin, Charles Ferrier (see second inset), is third from the left in the second row from bottom.  Note how the little boys in front are sitting on a ladder, or is that the way they stepped up to the steps of the small porch?  Maybe it was put there, or built there, to keep them out of the mud at the bottom of the steps…?

Also in the photo are children from the Letterman, Payne, Stever, Graham, Wilhite, Long, Day, Harvey, Haymes, Daugherty, King, Pack, Davidson, Forgey, Robinson, and Young families.  If you would like a copy of this photo, please contact me.

Easter, Phillipsburg Missouri – About 1930

007g

10//10/2018 UPDATE:  Have gotten more information to update the teenagers in this photo.  Second girl, back row, left end is Mag Rich,  next to her going right are Amzi Wills, Hurschal Cossey, George Cossey, one of the Rich boys.  Starting at the right end, going left, back row, Luther Crabaguh, Inez Wills Crabaugh, my mother Anna Shank Marlin, and one of the Clyde boys.  Fron row, little girl on left end is Berniece Rich.  Virgil Shank standing with legs spread directly behind the pot, popping an egg into his mouth.

Not sure how this photo was taken, someone obviously had to have a flash camera, one that would light up the entire group.  Near Easter each year when my mother was growing up, the smaller kids always had “egg roasts” during the day.  Not sure why they were called roasts since the eggs were boiled over a wood fire in a bucket or open pan.  When the older kids outgrew the daytime roasts, they held them at night.  This was probably about 1930 or 1931, and that’s my mother fourth from the right, wearing the dark hat and fur/fake fur collar.  The boy in the cap who is standing directly behind the boiling bucket looks like it could be her younger brother, Virgil.

THE WALTER ELBERT MARLIN FAMILY – About 1920-21

 

 

 

 

This photo is of my grandfather, Walter Elbert Marlin, his wife, Dulcie Ferrier Marlin, and their son (my dad) Ray J. Marlin.  Based on my dad’s age (about 8 or 9), I have estimated the date as 1920-21, and they would have been living in Aledo, Illinois.  My father was born in Conway, Missouri, but after a year or two, the family went to Illinois to farm.  They returned to Conway about ten years later.  My grandfather was always called Elbert rather than Walter.  He seems to have some sort of pin on his left lapel, but I cannot discern what it is and if he was a member of a lodge or something like that, the information was never passed down in the family.  My grandmother is wearing a locket that Elbert gave her very early in their relationship.  We still have it.  She always had two tiny photos in it….one of Elbert before they married, he is very young and smoking a pipe (it’s here on the blog) and then a tiny photo of my dad when he was just a few months old.  I have posted this photo before with a little bit of information of my dad but wanted to give it its own posting.
