Friday's Photo: An Important Celebration in Bienville Parish

My Bryan family ancestors took quite a few photographs and they can be found all over the United States. On Sunday, I posted a photo of Joe and Josie Cook along with an article about their golden anniversary celebration. These were found in Marguerite Cook Clark's collection. Fourteen hundred miles away from Marguerite Cook Clark's collection is the Frye Family collection where photos of those who attended the celebration can be found. 

I was able to identify the family in these photos with the help of a few readable labels in the photo album and by looking at other identified photos. However, there could be an error in the identification of the women. If you find a mistake, please contact me or leave a comment on my blog. 

Under the photo in the picture was written Mrs. Liza Davis, Mrs. Lizzie Bryan, Mrs. S. E. Frye, Mrs. Erie Bryan. Above the photo Mr. and Mrs. John L. Wimberly can be seen. Rev. Thomas Martin, Laura Bryan Martin, Josie Bryan Cook, and Joe W. Cook were seen in other identified family photos.

Above this photo "their children" is written. Comparing these men and women with other photos of Josie and Joe's children, allowed me to identify family members in this photograph.
