my Grandfather, Charles Nicholas Ward, & a Ben Walker ("Addie") penciled in as if that was a nickname for Ben?
I feel the photo was taken about 1906, as that was when he married my grandmother
Ella May Montgomery in Joplin, MO. Charles was Doniphan County, K 1900 & they moved back to KS about 1915.
We thought the bldg where they are standing "could be" an early photo of Jolly Mills in Newton County.
Granby, Newton Co., MO
from left to right, Sarah Montgomery Blain, George Washington Montgomery, & Cora Etta Montgomery Thomas at the Kimbrough rest home in Granby, MO before Oct, 1958, which was when George died. George & Cora lived there, & Sarah was visiting.
We feel Cora was married to Arthur M Thomas about 1936, & he commited suicide about then. I'd appreciate it if you could add this photo to your web site, along with my email address, & hoping someone can provide me with more info.. We are unable to find any info for Cora as to her death or burial, but family notes indicate it was shortly after her brother George died.
