For more years than I care
to remember, I've been searching for the identity of the lady
on the left in the above picture. I have many photos that she
appears in. Identifying her would be a big key to discovering
the names of many additional individuals in other family group
pictures in which she appears as the elderly matron figure.
I have the following
The lady on the right is
my great-grandmother Sarah Catherin Mundwiler / Cooper. Sarah
was the daughter of Jacob Mundwiler (born 1833 - died 1885) & Mary Ann Amick
(born 1828 - died 1907). Sarah was born in 1854 and in 1876 she
married George W. Cooper who was the son of Nathan Cooper & Susan Veatch.
Sarah died in Clearville, Pa. in 1939. Sarah had two sisters:
Eveline Mundwiler born in 1849 who married John Lamaster,
and Susan Elizabeth Mundwiler born in 1858.
Could the lady on the left
be one of Sarah's sisters? Sarah's mother Mary Ann Amick / Mundwiler
would have been 26 years older than Sarah. Could this have been
mother and daughter?
George Cooper had two older
sisters, could this be Rachel Cooper
/ Amick or Phebe Cooper / Bloom?
I'd certainly appreciate
any ideas, comments, suggestions. Could it be possible that someone
else has a copy of this picture and has been trying to figure
out who the person on the right might be??
/ Barkman (born 1893 - died 1977)
The only person I know in
this picture is my Aunt Freda Cooper
She is sitting, second from
the right in the back row. Based on her birth date and the fact
that she appears to be 15-17
here, the picture probably was taken in 1908 - 1910. The fence
in the background may also
be a clue. The George W. Cooper home (north-east of Clearville) had
a picket fence very much
like the fence in this and the first picture on this page.
Both the pictures on this
page probably were taken in the yard of the George Cooper home.
Can anyone help identify
the other charming ladies in this picture?
