Okay, I confess.

I've been eBaying again.

Because when I see a lot of cabinet photos available for song, and some of them are labeled...

Well, I just have to see if I can find the family whose treasure chest would not be complete without them.

This lot had 14 photos and one funeral card. Where there were photography studios ads and marks, they were from all over the country, so I don't think these photos came from any one estate.

I'll be haunting the Ancestry family trees and surname message boards to see if I can reunite the labeled ones with their families.
I think there's perhaps a possibility these two ladies were related.

Same photography studio.

The back of Sarah's looks to me like it says Grace mother.

Okay, we have the whole genealogy on the front of this one.

Callie Wilson Shook. Stephanie's Great Great G-mother. Callie Wilson Shook. Mother of C L. G Mother of Sheila. G G M of Rita. G G G of Stephanie Hare.
I'm looking to send these home.

If you know of folks with these surnames who lived around Nashville, TN, send 'em a link, please.

I assumed that ebay photos wouldn't have the names of the individuals. Now I want to troll around ebay also. If you find any Walkers from Kansas, let me know.

I recently saw a beautiful wedding certificate hanging in an antique store and wanted to buy it so I could look for the family but the cost was prohibitive. Very sad.
