My Father and mother's wedding photo taken
in Philadelphia, PA ,several days after the ceremony
which was on December 25, 1920 in
Sinnamahoning, PA. Handsome couple!
Pictured above are my
father, Layton BENNETT and his parents Amos A. BENNETT and
Maranda A. HAYNES Wheaton BENNETT in a picture taken circa
1919, just prior to his death. Per his obit in the Cameron
County Press, he was well know on the Susquehanna River
having been the supervisor of Barclay Bros. Lumbering
Operation. Prior to that he had been employed by Francis
Deloy of South Williamsport in his Lumbering operations.
Here's one I haven't figured out yet. On the back it says
"Died Sept. 7, 1915", and I believe she may be the wife of Reuben BENNETT,
BENNETT b Abt 1832 in Wysox, PA daughter of Hezekiah NEWELL
and Sally TUTTLE. Their children were Orsen b Abt 1848, Sarah
b Abt 1856 and Warren b Abt. 1858. If you have any info on her
or can prove her death date, please email me below. Thanks!
Note the flag and the man's picture behind
My great grandparents Caleb N. HAYNES and
Rebecca R. Brooks HAYNES prior to his death in 1901.
I think this picture was taken as the family assembled for
the funeral of my great grandfather George W. GORE who died on July 29,

months old at the time and is being held by her mother Ida Mae GORE in the

Edward H. SNYDER stands behind her.
This is of my mother's class at the
