Treasure Chest Thursday - Mom's Doll

Last week I went up home to Idaho to visit the family.  While I was there I took pictures of all the family treasures; the ones that I couldn't bring back with me. Well I think they are treasures.

This is mom's doll. Unfortunately I don't know much about it.  I neglected to get the details of how and when she came to own it.

She used to let me play with it once in a while.  It slept in a box up in her closet with a few more outfits as bedding.

Poor thing has seen better days.  It's probably a good thing mom quit letting me play with her when she did.

This is page 13 of the Bishop/Carey family photo album that I found. Unfortunately there is no clue as to who these little cuties are.

Bishop/Carey Orphan Photo Album - Page 11

This is page 11 of the Bishop/Carey family photo album that I found.



According to the inscriptions on these photos they were taken in June of 1939 at the Bennington Woman's college campus in Vermont.

In the second row of photos we have Eloise and Moe in the first one, and Eloise, Margie and Betty in the second one.

The gal in the bottom photo is Eloise II.

There are no inscriptions on the back of these either, but one of them is stamped.


PARAMOUNT

Aug 21, 1936

PERFECT PRINTS
THEY NEVER FADE




I am guessing that Paramount developed the photo and made the film, but I certainly can't find anything about them producing personal photographs.

Bishop/Carey Orphan Photo Album - Page 9

This is page 9 of the Bishop/Carey family photo album that I found. There are no inscriptions on back to indicate who are in these photos, but I can make an educated guess as to the identity of a couple of them.




The man sporting the hat and collar in the top left photo is none other than Rev. Archibald Carey, Sr., a political activist, writer, and religious leader.


The young man in the upper right photo is his son, Archibald Carey, Jr.  Chicago politician and minister were among his many titles. The young man in the lower right photo is also Archibald Carey, Jr.



This photo does have writing on the back telling where and when it was taken, but not who is in the picture.


I believe it is Elizabeth Bishop.  This photo was obviously taken on the same trip as this one. According to the writing on the back of this photo it was taken in the Spitzstein mountains at Sachrang during Whitsuntide in 1937.




Hopefully someday I will find a Bishop/Carey descendant to give this precious photo album to.

Treasure Chest Thursday - Kissing Cows

I will treasure these darling little kissing cow salt and pepper shakers forever!

Why? Not because I am crazy about cow salt and pepper shakers, but because of how I got them.

This past August 5th hubby and I went on vacation. Hubby hasn't taken a vacation from work since 2003.

We went to visit friends in Indiana and Ohio and on the way back home we drove through the Smokey Mountains. Not only was this our first vacation together in 11 years, but we haven't been in the mountains just as long.  We love mountains!

We stayed one day and night at the Gatlinburg Inn in Tennessee.  It was awesome, like staying at your grandma's house.  We went to the Smokey Mountain Winery and did some wine tasting (yum).  We bought 1 bottle of  Mountain Red,  1 bottle of Raspberry wine, and 2 bottles of Muscadine White and the neatest little bottle stopper.


Then I saw The Salt and Pepper Shaker Museum.  They have some pretty cool shakers in there, but most of the ones they have for sale are priced way too high.  Later that day we walked up and down the street and I had to check out Maples' Tree and that's where I found these cute little cows, and they were the last pair!

So when I look at these cows, I will smile and think about the wonderful trip through the Smokies that hubby and I shared.

Bishop/Carey Family Album - page 6



There is only one photo that has something written on the back.

Unfortunately it doesn't say who it is, but I think it is Elizabeth Bishop.

The picture was taken in 1937 while sailing the Chiemsee
during Whitsuntide.




 I believe the photo on the top is her brother Sheldon Hale Bishop, Jr. and the photo on the bottom right is Sheldon and their mother Eloise Carey Bishop.

Unfortunately there are no labels on these photos either.  However, it was noted on the top left photo that the little baby was 3 mos. old and the picture was taken in August 1, 1938.

Bishop/Carey Photo Album Page 4

If you missed the first post about this photo album you can read it here.



Unfortunately there is no writing on the back of these photos to identify the subjects, but I believe I know who three of them are.

In the top left photo I believe the woman in the middle is Eloise Carey Bishop, and the girl on her left is her daughter Elizabeth Bishop.

In the top right photo the woman on the left is Eloise Bishop.

The bottom left photo is Archibald J. Carey, Jr and Elizabeth Bishop.  They were cousins.

Eloise and Elizabeth are the only ones I can identify in the bottom right photo.

Another Lost Family Treasure on it's Way Home!

Elsa Daher's 1917 report card is on it's way home to family members!

I received an email from a great-niece of "Elsie's" a couple of days ago.  She informed me that Elsie and her husband never had any children.  They lived on the original homestead where her parents settled after immigrating from Germany.

It  does my heart good to send this family treasure where it belongs, in the home of a family member who will truly appreciate it.

The two Christmas photos are the only ones with writing on the back.








I am guessing that these photos were sent to Elizabeth from someone named Fritz?

Bishop/Carey Family Photo Album - Featuring Dr. Elizabeth Bishop Davis

If you missed my first post about the Bishop/Carey photos, you can read it here.

Bishop/Carey photos, page 1


I have also located the Bishop family in the 1930 Manhattan Census.

Source Citation: Year: 1930; Census Place: Manhattan, New York, New York; Roll: 1570; Page: 11B; Enumeration District: 788; Image: 824.0


There is only one photo on this page that is labeled.  I am not positive, but I think the handsome looking gentleman in the suit is Shelton Bishop, Jr.


Apparently this photo was taken while she was a junior at Barnard College. Elizabeth  was a graduate of Barnard College and received her M.D. from the College of Physicians & Surgeons, Columbia University, in 1949.  Elizabeth passed away last year in February.  There was an article about her death in Harlem World Magazine.


It took me a while to find an actual obituary for her, I guess because she used different names. I also found notes of condolences. I now know that she has descendants so hopefully I will be able to make contact.

I was also able to find some magazine articles about Dr. Elizabeth Bishop Davis reporting on her success as well as her marriage.









There are also a couple of articles about her in the Columbia University Journal. Once you are there just run a search using the term "Trussell".

What an outstanding member of society this woman was.
