Find Me Friday – Luther Higginbotham

Posted on by 1 comment

Find Me Friday is a blog prompt I use to post a picture of someone who is unidentified in the hopes that someone else will have the picture and know who it is.  I have solved several mysteries this way.

Sometimes I post a picture of someone who is identified in the hopes that someone out there might be looking for their photo and be lucky enough to find it here.

Sometimes I post information about someone in the hopes that I can find out more about them or what became of them.  This is the case today with Luther Higginbotham.

Luther is the first cousin of my grandfather Earl.  Luther was born to Rena (Peavy) Higginbotham and Charles S. Higginbotham in abt. 1899

This is a picture that was labeled Luther Higginbotham, and was among the photos that I got from my Aunt Jane. This uniform appears to be WWI to me, but I’m certainly no expert.

In this photo, Luther is the little boy in the middle and his mother, Rena (Peavy) Higginbotham, is on the left sitting down. Charles Higginbotham, his father is on the right sitting down. Standing behind them, I believe (but not positive) is Alice (Higginbotham) Crank and Florence (Higginbotham) Davis.

This photo with Luther Higginbotham in the middle, was labeled by my grandfather, Earl Higginbotham.

This photo of Luther as a boy was posted on Ancestry.com by a family member of Rena’s second husband. I believe Charles died sometime before 1910, as Rena was listed on the 1910 census as a widow, and then remarried in 1911.

I’d love to know what happened to Luther, Charles and Rena.  If you are a descendant of theirs, I would love to hear from you.

Find Me Friday – Little Goldie Freedle

Find Me Friday is my own little blog prompt to help me post pictures of unidentified people, or people who are identified, but I don’t know who they are or how they connect to my family.

One good thing about the 52 Ancestors in 52 weeks challenge of Amy Johnson Crow over at No Story Too Small blog is that while I’m going through all my files looking at documents and preparing the posts is that I am coming across things that I have forgotten about, or maybe they mean more to me now that I have done more research.

Last week when I was working on my blog post for 52 Ancestors – #3 James Edmund Harris, I came across this photo that Martha Harris Horn and Butch Harris had shared with me.

Possibly Goldie Freedle??

Possibly Goldie Freedle??

Now, I can’t read the first name for certain. My brother Butch thinks it could be Anna. I’m not sure. The middle name is definitely Harris and the last name is definitely Freedle. Then you have the back of the photo.

First it says, for “Uncle Edd Haris“.

Then the other writing says, “Hellaw Grandmoma and Grandpa and little brothers. little Goldie Freedle.

So, this has to be a niece of Grandpa of Ed. In some of my research at one point I listed Grandpa Ed’s brother Levi Harris as having a daughter named Paris, which I found on the 1900 census for Levi. Turns out when I went back and looked today, Paris is a son of Levi, not a daughter.  I had hoped this was possibly the mother of Goldie, but it wasn’t to be.

What’s odd is, the family of Levi is living with Mahala (Valentine) Harris Hogan, the mother of Grandpa Ed and Levi, and they are listed as Hogan’s not Harris’.  Mahala had remarried William H. Hogan after William James Harris passed away.

A quick search on Ancestry.com lead me to this record:

Paris Goldie Freedle Campos Death Record for California

Paris Goldie Freedle Campos Death Record for California

So, hmmmmmm. Maybe I’m on the right track?

If you know little Goldie Freedle, please contact me.

Find Me Friday – Unidentified Photos

I’m looking for who this fellow is. I think he might be a Davis, or someone from that clan, but on the other hand, he sure does have those Higginbotham ears.

And this family, I’m not sure who they are because every time I look, I just see George Bush….. LOL!

As usual, if you recognize anyone, please let me know!

Find Me Friday – Unidentified Photos

This photo is from an album that Butch Harris and Martha Harris Horn let me make copies of.

The album belonged to Mary George Hooker Herring Bickley, and could be anyone from the Harris, Hooker, Bickley, or Herring families.

The two men on the top look very similar, but they are not the same person because they are both in the photo on the bottom right with two women. Could they be twins, or brothers very close in age?

As usual, if you recognize anyone in these photos please contact me.
