Lewis and Grace (Miskell) Bruther

This is a photo of Lewis N. Bruther and his new wife, Grace A. Miskell. They were married on July 28, 1889 in Jefferson County, Indiana. Lewis is the brother of my great-grandfather, Jesse F. Bruther. Jesse is the father of Loretta Elizabeth (Bruther) Wakefield.

Sadly, Lewis died just 2 1/2 years after he and Grace were married.

Will Smythe

While visiting with Ruth Ann (Bruther) Hoover in California this past February, she was kind enough to lend me this photo of her uncle, William (Will) Smythe. Will is the husband of Elsie Emily (Bruther) Smythe. Ruth Ann is the daughter of Ervin D. Bruther and Clara (Hargitt) Bruther.

Willard Totten Wakefield

My mom has had this photo in her living room for several years and I have wanted to make a copy of it for just as long. Finally, after years of pleading, she gave up the picture so I could make a copy. The picture is of Willard Totten Wakefield, a.k.a. Bobo, likely taken when he was a teenager. The quality is not that great but it probably is one of the earliest pictures of Bobo that we have in our collection.

As mentioned in my previous post, my grandparents lived for a few years in Franklin, Indiana. Here is a picture of my Mom, Sally Jo (Wakefield) Meziere, as a young child in Franklin.

Bobo and Lora, 1948

In February, my grandparents, my mother, and I took a trip out to California to visit Ferris, Pat, and their family. While there, I had the opportunity to make copies of some photos that Ferris and Pat had. Included in those photos was a picture of Willard Totten (Bobo) Wakefield and Loretta Elizabeth (Lora) Bruther from 1948.
