Anna Jewell Berry

relationship:  Her 3x great-Grandmother

This grandmother only lived to be 29 years old.  I’m assuming there was some sort of sickness in the area at the time of her death – daughter Welthy died the day before her and son John died less than 2 weeks after her.

Some time between birth (1836) and 1850, her family moved from New York to Benton County, Iowa, United States.  She remained in this county until her death.

Grandma’s Photo Album

My great-grandmother Lottie Smith Fetherkile had this photo album.  We found it while cleaning out my great-grandfather’s house after his death.  Grandma Lottie died in 1926 so we know all were taken before this date.

Anyone have a guess as to approximate date???

Grandma Helen was unable to identify anyone in these pictures.  I figure if I put them out there, maybe someone will recognize a relative and let me know who it is.

Lottie Smith married Harry Fetherkile in 1905.  Lottie was born in Goodland, Indiana.  The family lived in Kendall County, Illinois and then Maricopa, Arizona.  Her family moved to Urbana, Iowa by 1900.  After her marriage, they lived in Urbana, Iowa until her death.

Here’s the first picture, no identifying information is found.
