Shared Photo: Theophilus Berrian Heath Family

+9 votes

For years I have had in my possession a small 2x2 photo my mother gave me of her great grandfather's family.  After researching the family for a few years, I have finally come across a larger and older photo of my  2G Grandfather and his family.  The middle boy is my Great Grandfather, John James Heath, whose grave I visited last summer.  The other boy, Robert is John's twin. Persistence Pays!

I wanted to share this family photo of Theophilus B Heath with the community. Location: St. Clair County, Missouri. Date: c1898

Thanks for sharing.
NICE Photo !   This may explain where some of my Cantrell family arrived at the name "Theophilus" - we have a FEW of them !

Theophilus Taylor Cantrell was my GGrand Uncle

Thanks for sharing !
Thank you!  Theophilus was a lover of flowers.  He moved from Atchison, Missouri, sold his farm and bought a lot in Stafford, Kansas, to be near his son, John James and family who moved there earlier and had a farm there.  Theophilus was put in charge of the city park flower beds and what a beautiful park is was with his care as mentioned in the Stafford Courier obituary.
