What it is:

Photo (3.75 x 5.5 inches) mounted to a cardboard frame/matting (6 x 9 inches; I have cropped most of the matting from this scan).

What I know about it:

Photographer is Levi F. Smith of El Paso, Illinois.  Written in pen on the front (!) of the matting is Edna & Melvin Mohr – Edna was a Kingdon.


This is another of the photos my mother gave me.  I think it’s a very nice photo, and it drives me crazy when people write their genealogical notes on the front instead of the back, which is why I cropped it (but maybe that’s just me).  I had only heard of the El Paso in Texas, I didn’t know there was one in Illinois.  Here is a bit of information about the photographer, including a photo, and here is a picture of his house.

  1. What is Edna hiding in her right hand?

  2. It is so nice to have names to go with the faces. 🙂

  3. This is dumb, but I thought at first that it said, “Edna was a Klingon.”

  4. I’m with Genealogy Lady…GOLDMINE!

    harriedcostumer…I’m dying over here…Klingons…ha, ha, ha!
