I've "rescued" an old photograph of Frank HESS which was taken at the Brown
Studio in Cresco, Iowa. The photograph appears to have been taken in the
1890's with Frank likely in his teens age the time it was taken. I am hoping
to locate someone from Frank's family so that this wonderful old photograph
can be returned to the care of his family.
If you are a member of this HESS Family, or you know someone who might be,
please contact me.
I've "rescued" two old photographs belonging to the MCINTOSH and GARDNER
Families of Iowa. The first is a photograph of Johnston, Anna, Jimmy, and
Harry MCINTOSH which was taken at the O. H. Park Studio in Clarinda, IA.
The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1880's or 1890's with the
parents appearing to be in their 40's and the two boys about 8 - early
teens. In addition to their names, someone has written "Uncle and Aunt".
The second photograph is one of Maude GARDNER, Jessie MCINTOSH, and Nellie
GARDNER and was taken at the W. Brown Studio in Cresco, IA. This photograph
appears to have been taken in the 1890's with the three girls in their teens
at the time. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following
information regarding these families:
Johnston MCINTOSH was b. 12 Feb 1843 in OH to Mr. & Mrs. James MCINTOSH (b.
born Scotland). Johnston died 4 Apr 1930 in Villisca, IA.
James M. MCINTOSH was b. 8 Sept 1875 in Stanton, IA to parents Johnston M.
MCINTOSH and Annie MCINTOSH. James married Bertha Pearl DIRRIM on 17 Aug
1904 in Bethesda, IA. James died 5 Mar 1946.
Harry Alexander MCINTOSH as b. 25 May 1881 in Page Co. IA to parents
Johnston M. MCINTOSH and Annie MCINTOSH. Harry married Maude or Maud Ethel
WEIMER (b. 4 Apr 1888 in Massena or Villisca, IA) on 11 Jul 1917 in Massena,
IA and together they had a daughter, Florence Estelle MCINTOSH b. 29 Jul
1918 in Villisca, IA. Harry died in Villisca, IA on 5 Mar 1962.
Maude GARDNER was b. 16 Jun 1886 and died in Howard, IA in April 1971.
