I was loaned an envelope of photos from my Grandma Ruth’s side of the family. I’ve been working on scanning them and uploading them. I’ll post some here for the benefit of my extended family.
Here is a photo of John and Etna [Northern] Mitchell and three of their four children. I wonder where Glenn was?
Iva, Etna, Howard, Ruth, John Mitchell
Glenn, Etna, Iva, and Ruth Mitchell
Howard Albert Mitchell / 1901 – 1970
Glenn Alden Mitchell / 1903 – 1988
Ruth Emily Mitchell / 1904 – 1992
What a cutie!
Iva Elzira Mitchell / 1909 – 2002
I believe Iva Mitchell is the third person from the left in this picture of nurses’ aids.
This is a postcard that John Mitchell sent from Florida to his son Howard in 1921. Howard would have been 20 years old. The postcard reads: “Got your letter today and Ruth’s yesterday. Went to the beach today. Cannot begin to tell you about it. Will try to tell you some when we get home. Your Father.”
Glenn and Howard Mitchell. I’m not sure what occasion this was, but they are sitting at a piano or an organ. The lady in the background is identified on the original photo as Amy Tipps and the gentleman as Lee Ruyle.
The bardyard at the Mitchell farm.
I do not know the identity of the people in this photo, though the second from the right in the back row looks like Ruth. Any thoughts?
Family members, please feel free to copy these pictures. I have a few other Mitchell photos to scan that Mom gave me some time ago. I plan to upload all the photos to a site where they will be available to you all.
