RE: Milton Trammell He is number 32 in photo. If you click on the picture it gives a list of all identified in it.
*Also I have another photo from 1913 reunion of the front page of the Old Milton County Paper. If you would like it you can download from David William DeVore memorial in Providence Cemetery, Alpharetta.
Harvey John of Ellis Co., TX Thank you for your input concerning Harvey John. My great grandfather, Francis Marion John, Sr., #24920335, was a brother to William John, #19447575, who was Harvey John's father.
Harvey John and Ida Manning were married on 17 May 1891 in Ellis Co., TX. Marital problems must have existed between them prior to the 1900 since they were living separately when that census was taken.
Ida John is listed as Ida Johns in the 1900 Ellis Co., TX, census. Ernest, Lula [should be Lillian], and Henry are with her. They are at the same dwelling as Charles and Henrietta Manning who are Ida's "adoptive" parents. I don't think they formally adopted Ida and her brother, Eddy. In the 1880 Ellis Co., TX, census, Eddy Miller, adopted son, and Ida Miller, adopted daughter, are listed in the household of C. Columbus and Henrietta Manning. Ida must have taken the surname of Manning along the way.
Harvey and Ida John were divorced on 24 May 1901 in Ellis Co., TX. Harvey was awarded custody of Earnest John, Lillian John, and Henry John. Then on 26 Dec 1901, custody of Lillian John was granted to Ida John and custody of Earnest John and Henry John was granted to Harvey John with visitation rights granted to all parties.
By 1910 Ernest John lived with his sister and family, Walter B. and Clementine Hale in Taylor Co., TX. Lillian John was married to Otto Nauert, and they lived in Johnson Co., TX, in 1910. Henry Johns (sic) and his father, Harvey Johns (sic), lived in Ellis Co., TX, with Harvey's mother, Nancy L. Johns (sic). It's hard to keep people from adding an "s" onto the surname John.
Harvey Ernest John Thank you for the information about Harvey's occupation. Do you know the name of the store where he worked? I have searched and searched for Harvey's mother's death record, but so far I haven't been successful.
