Sad to say, I do not know anyone in this picture. I think perhaps it is the Montgomery family of Washington County, Kentucky. My great-grandfather, Robert E. Lee Montgomery, looks very similar to the gentleman seated in the front row on the left – and the gentleman standing in the back, fourth person from the left. His father, William Peter Montgomery III, died August 22, 1910, and it looks as if this picture could have been made around that time. If so, the tiny older lady sitting in the front row could be Martha Ann Carrico Montgomery, wife to William P. Their children are listed below:
John Thomas Montgomery, b. 1863, married Carrie ?
Robert E. Lee Montgomery, b. 1865, married Frances Barber Linton
Anna Laura Montgomery, b. 1867, married ? Wheatley
William Edward Montgomery, b. 1870
Mary C. Montgomery, b. 1872
Samuel Howard Montgomery, b. 1874, married Lizzie O’Neal
Louise May “Lily” Montgomery, b. 1876, married Albert Brook Rudd
Charles Hampton Montgomery, b. 1878
Frances B. Montgomery, b. 1880
Sarah Isabelle Montgomery, b. 1885
Since this blog was posted I’ve had someone send me a couple of photos that are also of a Montgomery family. Does anyone recognize the woman in this photo? She is Molly Montgomery with her husband Charles W. Hand. The child is Robert Lee Hand. This photo was taken in Knox County, Tennessee.
Such a beautiful photo – taken in 1897.
The following photo was taken in Mound City, Maryland. It is Robert Lee Hand as a toddler. If anyone has information on either of these photos please comment – it will be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
