Before My Time is about the ancestry and extended family of my four grandparents: John Samuel Krentz (Indiana/North Dakota), Margreta Tjode Hedwig (Gertie) Buss (North Dakota), Rosmer Pettis Kerr (Pennsylvania/Michigan), and Evelyn Elvina Hauer (Michigan), and other topics in genealogy and family history.

More Photos from Slippery Rock

Slippery Rock State Normal School Chapel, 1912
(click to enlarge)

Kate Pettis Kerr does not appear in the photo above. Surely it was she who wrote identifications on the back, though. Written in pencil on gray cardboard, they're very hard to read. I've tweaked the image a bit to make them more legible. To the best of my ability, then:

Back row, standing: Marie Newmarker, A--- McCoy, Mary Miller (or Sutter?), Everett Glasgow, Carrie Ethel Hamilton, ---- Edmond, Walter Hart, Jennie McDonel, John Galloway, Claire Anderson, Freda Foulke.

Front row, seated: Howard ----, Lindley ----, Jean Morrison, Alice Taylor, Jeannette Pattison, Agnes Garvey, Anna Sutter, Lucy ----, Ella Hoagland, Edward Walters, Thomas M. Tate.

Child, center stage: Morrison Smith

Standing in front of stage: Nylda Willison, Mrs. Hulm

Claim These Photos:

The two photos below were taken by Seavy of New Castle, Pa. In the upper left corner of the top photo, you see "SR '06" (indicating Slippery Rock 1906) on a small flag. Although the other photo is not marked the same way, the two photos have apparently traveled together for a hundred years, so I'm guessing both have Slippery Rock affiliations.

If you happened upon this website via a search for William Dickey or Gus West, you may be interested in these photos which were identified thus on the back. Although these were found with photos kept by Rosmer and Evelyn Kerr, to my knowledge William and Gus are not related to my family. I'd be happy to send the photos to their properly identified descendants. Use the Comments feature at the bottom of the post to contact me. Please include your email address for a personal response. Any comment containing an email address or other personal contact information will not be published to the blog.

Can you identify these photos?

Below are two images which I believe were both taken at Billingsley Art Studio in Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania, although only one was marked as such. Although the photo of the woman is slightly larger than the photo of the man, the background appears to be the same in both photos. I'm guessing they may have been taken in different years, probably between 1902-1913. Neither photograph is identified. If you recognize either of these people, please contact me via the Comments feature at the bottom of this post.
