Madness Monday - Unidentified Photos

If anything can drive a person mad it's unidentified photos that you are 99.9% positive are part of your family.  I've got many of those, more than a couple dozen.  I'm going to start posting them here so that family members and others can help identify them...

The first one I'd love to positively ID is the little cutie on the top right.  I THINK it's my mother Margaret Troyer Post or my aunt Dorothy Troyer Haines.  I found it in an old photo album belonging to my mother.

The photo on the left is used for comparison.  These children  have been positively identified as Dorothy (younger). The right photo was taken in 1914 (approx).

The second unidentified photo (on bottom right) I'm also assuming are my aunt and mother...ages look right (about 4 years apart in age).  It was also found in my mother's photo album.

I have no other photos of these two to compare these with.  The next pictures I have of my mom were when she was graduating from high school.

  1. ... and I cannot throw them away, even if I don't know who they are! A couple of dozen is about right. Me too. ;-)

    Keep these ancestor stories coming!

  2. Oh I completely agree with you! I have several in my collection too. I have tried to find somebody in the family that might be able to shed even a little light on who they might be, but no luck yet! Hang in there!
