Davis Family Photos



A box full of Davis photos, recently rescued here in Delaware. There is an old card box filled with photos and negatives, mostly featuring the Davis Family, particulary son Billy Davis (William Davis). There are also five, 5 x 7's of Billy from about one year to maybe 12 years old. There are several photos taken by Ruhl Studios in Cumberland Maryland. There are also some taken by Ward's Studio in Frostburg, MD.

The photos are mostly undated, but Billy must have been born around March of 1952 and most of the photos and negatives appear to be from the 50's. There is one old real photo post card which is undated an unlabeled, and also taken in Frostburg (McElfish Studio).

There is one, small class photo of FHS (probably Frostburg High School).

There are not many names on these photos, but here are the ones I could find: Mrs Eugene Davis, 507 Pine St, Cumberland Maryland. Jean Sigler, Alma (probably Alma Davis), and Mary Robinette (Mary Teter).... and of course Billy Davis.

Jerome Cross & Family


Here is an nice old, cabinet card photo of Jerome Cross and his family. The photo was taken by W.S. Davis studio in Ellenville NY (129 Canal Street). The photo is undated but judging from the scalloped gold edges of the card, I'd guess that it's from around 1890-1900.

This could be the Jerome Cross who married Amy Sheley (daughter of John H. Sheley and Amy Sheley) of Ulster County in New York. Denning and Ellenville are both in Ulster County.

Aside from the name, there is nothing else written on the photo. The image shown here has been cropped and labeled for posting; however the original image is the typical cabinet card size and without any scanned labels.

Perry Children


A nice old undated photo of Charles Perry, Sanford Perry and George Perry. The photograph was taken by Schultz Duryea Studio in Brooklyn NY. This looks like a photograph from around the turn of the century, circa 1900.


Aside from the names, there is nothing else written on the photo.
Note: The above scanned image has been cropped for this post. The original photo is 4.5 x 6.5 inches and in excellent condition.

Two old Boddy family postcards


Here we have two old postcards sent to Mrs. Boddy in Conowingo, Cecil County Maryland. The postcard on top was sent to Mrs. L.H. Boddy in March of 1926 and the salutation reads, "Dear Sister". The handwriting is almost as bad as mine, but I can read that the sender is also a Boddy writing from Philadelphia.


The postcard on the bottom was sent to Mrs. Lulu Boddy in Conowingo, MD in September of 1924. The sender is Edna and the salutation reads, "Dear Mother".
Each postcard is in fair shape.
