Henry and the Six Surviving Children

What a sad family. I think this photo was taken at or soon after the death and funeral of Elizabeth (Armitage) Meinzen in June, 1920. Henry, Elizabeth's husband, sits in the center of the photo surrounded by his and Elizabeth's six surviving adult children (of 15 born to Henry and Elizabeth).

Around Henry, beginning from the left, are Mina, Naomi (half hidden), Henry, W. C. Robert, Belle, and Lula. Henry is the oldest of the children, born in 1870, and Naomi is the youngest, born in 1898 or 1899.

This is another of the photocopies from the box from Aunt Polly.

  1. That's so sad they lost so many children. I have a similar photo with 5 of 14 living children in it.


I appreciate your comments and look forward to reading what you have to say. Thanks for stopping by.
