Shared Photo: Children of Jacob Warren Miller and Bell Dicken - 1884

+5 votes

I found a photo of the Cannon School House at the Van Alstyne Library. After enlarging it, I immediately spotted my ancestors. The photo didn't have a date, but I estimate it to be about 1884.


James, Jacob Almorine, John Clinton and Lula

I wanted to share this family photo of Lula Alexander with the community. Location: Cannon, Grayson County, Texas, USA. Date: 1884.
