"Faith of our Fathers"
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, Mary Newell 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 her.

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, 1902.
My mother Esther Snyder BENNETT would have been about 16 months old at the time and is being held by her mother Ida Mae GORE in the left/center of the picture. Ida Mae's husband
