I just LOVE this picture! Must have been quite a party (maybe a wedding?) What
I especially like is the fact that some of the people in the photo are not so stiffly posed, as is the case in most antique
I'm not sure who are the people are in this photo, except that I've been told that the three young men on the
back row and the young woman in the middle of the back row are children of Barbara Elizabeth STROUP
Kidd and her husband, E. C. "Tim" Kidd. I think that the young man in the center of the photo is my grandfather,
James Franklin KIMERY. It's really hard to tell in these old pictures, since
the Stroup resemblence is so strong, and so many of the cousins look alike. Even today, some of our family are
being mistakened for very distant Stroup cousins whom we have never met!
I wish I had an original of this photo. I have a very small portion of the original, and only got this
copy of the whole picture when a distant cousin, Reilly Kidd emailed it to me. Thanks, Reilly!
