Family Photos: Seymour, Texas - Part I

This picture is one of the many pictures sent to me by my cousin, Jackie (see Forgotten Family Part I). According to the note written on the back, DeRay Bryan is in the front (middle) and her sister Marie is sitting on her right. Millard Ray Latta is the tall girl in the back. DeRay and Marie were my father’s sisters. Millard Ray was his first cousin.

I suspect that the picture was taken between 1912 to 1916. The family attended First Baptist Church and lived in Seymour for most of that period. Can anyone identify the other girls?

I decided to compare the girls to those in the W.O.W Women posted on my blog July 8, 2011 and then realized that the windows and curtains were the same in both pictures. Was this someone’s home? There is recognizable wallpaper in the above picture.  Does anyone have similar pictures?

  1. You might want to post these on the "Hey, I Lived in Seymour Tx" group on Facebook to see if anyone there can help.

  2. Thank you! I knew about the Museum site, but not that one! I have several others to post and have questions about all.
