I've "rescued" three old photographs belonging to the HARTER, WILLIAMS,
KAUFFMAN, and PRIDDY Families. The first is a photograph of Mary Catherine
WILLIAMS HARTER with three children, Mabel, Nellie, and Basil and her sister
in law Sarah HARTER KAUFFMAN and Sarah's daughter Susie KAUFFMAN. No
location indicated on photograph, likely taken in the 1890's. The two women
appear to be in their 30's or 40's and the children range from about 3 years
to early teens.
The second photograph is one of Mary Catherine WILLIAMS HARTER, wife of
Leander Douglass HARTER with children Mabel and Basil. The photograph was
taken at the Uhlman Studio in St. Joseph, Missouri. Likely taken in the
1880's, Mary appears to be in her 20's with Basil an infant and Mabel about
4 years old. In addition to their names, someone writes "two of the four
children born to this couple, two additional children, Nellie Susan HARTER
b. 3 Nov 1890 in Salina, KS and Noel David HARTER b. 1 Nov 1904 in Oklahoma
Territory" on the back of the photograph.
The third is one of Guy G. PRIDDY which was taken at the J. A. Reynolds
Studio in Creston, Iowa. This photograph appears to have been taken in the
1880's with Guy appearing to be about 6 years old at the time. I believe
that Guy later married Nellie Susan HARTER referenced on the photograph
