These are the names of the family members pictured as identified by my grandmother, Elsie R. Stayer Detwiler. The only unidentified person was the woman I have called Nancy Shank. Elsie apparently had forgotten Nancy
as she is the only family member who should have been living at that time and wasn't listed. The only other inconsistency in her list of names was the youngest infant whom she called Martha--Martha was born in 1905 and lived till 1950; Nancy Viola was born in Nov. 1902 but died in 1913 (before Elsie married Clarence) which probably explains the discrepancy. Since Nancy Viola appears to be less than a year old and the picture seems to have been taken in the spring/summer I estimate it dates from spring of 1903.

Thank you Lynn for sending this Family picture with all the folks identified. I suspect that this will be very useful to many Detwiler Family researchers. In addition, Lynn has sent a Lineage for Samuel M. Detwiler. It has been added to the Lineages Pages.
