I've "rescued" a group of photographs belonging to the SAYRE, COUCH, FOSTER,
and HASTINGS Family which appear to be connected. The photographs included
in the group are as follows:
* "Dear Old Mother SAYRE", taken at the Newberry & Solanders Studio
in Rock Island, IL, 1860's or 1870's, woman in 60's
* Margaret COUCH, taken at the Gayford Studio in Rock Island, IL,
1870's or 1880's, woman in 50's or 60's, note "Mother of Fannie SAYRE"
* David COUCH, taken at the Chas E. Edwards Studio in Bridgeton, NJ,
1860's or 1870's, man in 20's or 30's, note "Dad's only bro"
* Estella M. FOSTER, taken at the Parks Studio in Clarinda, IA,
1870's or 1880's, girl of about 3 years, note "Hattie COUCH FOSTER'S oldest
* Rebecca HASTINGS, taken at the Miller & Co. Studio in Davenport,
IA, 1870's, woman in 60's, note "Grandma COUCH'S oldest sister"
* Stella FOSTER, taken at the E. B. HINMAN Studio in Clarinda, IA,
1870's or 1880's, infant, note "Aunt Hattie's"
Based on limited research I was able to locate census information regarding
some of the family. That information is as follows:
1870 census of Coal Valley, IL:
John COUCH, age 52, a Farmer, born NJ
Margaret COUCH, age 45, Keeping House, born OH
John D. COUCH, age 24, at Home, born OH

David COUCH, age 18, at Home, born OH
Hattie COUCH, age 16, at Home, born OH
Maggie COUCH, age 13, at Home, born OH

1880 census of East River, IA:

I'm hoping to locate someone from this family so that these wonderful old
photographs can be returned to the care of family. If you are a member of
this family, or know someone who might be, please contact me.
