Kelty Four Geneartion Photo

This is a four generation photo that I found in one of the flea markets in Jacksonville. ( I can't remember which one.)

There is a sticky note on the back identifying each person.

1. Emer Kelty
2. Alice Kelty
3. Elizabeth Votaw
4. Thomasine Teeters

According to the 1900 Census, Emer was born Feb 1885 in Ohio.
I figure the photo was taken somewhere between 1888 and 1890.

Alice Kelty and her family lived next door to her parents Lidley and Elizabeth.

It looks like Emer Kelty was a dog breeder:

He was secretary of the Pittsburgh Collie Club:

Hopefully this photo can find it's way to a member of the Kelty family.

  1. This is a wonderful leeter filled with hope for the future. Could not stop but go back to memory lane looking at the typeset of the letter, the good old days of a typewriter.
