I am researching the LATHWELL family and various descended lines (LATHWELL,
PEACH, CORNELIUS, ROFFE, KNEESHAW, KEETCH, SMELTZER, VAN AMBURGH, RHODES).
I recently inherited a box of old studio portraits from a branch of the
Lathwell family. Four of the portraits are from studios in Creston, Ringgold
Co., and Mt. Ayr, Union Co. . They appear to be from the mid to late 1800s.
Family background: Daniel LATHWELL and Sarah PEACH emigrated from England
(Luton, Bedfordshire and London) in the 1850s. They had a total of 10
children, 7 of whom survived. The family settled in Orangeville, Ontario,
north and west of Toronto about 60 miles. The family were staunch Methodists
with Daniel establishing one of the first churches in Orangeville. Some of
the family migrated to Manistee and Benzie Counties in west Michigan. The
Roffe branch migrated to New York State south of Buffalo. Another
unidentified group ended up in Rochester, NY.
Daughter Emma Jane married William CORNELIUS.
Daughter Sarah Ann married Thomas Henry ROFFE.
Son William Thomas married Annie KNEESHAW.
Son Joseph Roberts married Pricilla KEETCH.
Daughter Elizabeth married Thomas SMELTZER.
Son John Nathaniel married Caroline VAN AMBURGH
Son Harry married Harriet RHODES and, when widowed, married Fanny SMELTZER
The portraits are:
1. Creston: Woman, Crow studio
2. Creston: Young woman, Spurr studio
3. Creston: Woman, C.D.Agnew's Art Studio, Dunn Johnson Block
4. Mt. Ayr: Man, W.G.Maxwell (? Mawell, Hawell, Howell??) studio
If anyone has knowledge of any of these family names or their descendants
being in the Creston or Mt. Ayr area in the late 1800 s and early 1900s, I
would greatly appreciate hearing from you.
Thank you in advance for your help.
