Item number 3-97 is a nice boy with a dog.

3-97

Item number 3-99 is a man with some horses. This might be George Lamunion, Belle’s brother. He was sometimes described as a teamster in a logging camp on censuses.

3-99

This nice lady looks a little like the girls pictured here. We don’t think she is one of them, but we wonder if she might be the third sister.

Once again, if you know any of these people, please contact me.

If I was forced to guess, I would think these ladies were two of the Murray sisters, daughters of Mary Ann Lamunion and John H. Murray. Perhaps the older two, Eliza J. 1876- 1960 and Ina Belle, 1878-1964. There was a lot of correspondence in the box from the girls, and their sibling Etta, 1883-1864. But, I really have no idea who they might be.

Please contact me if you have information about this photo or any other that I have posted.

I first wondered if this child might be Belle. Belle was the youngest of the Ruscum Lamunion family, and was born in 1864 in New York. The family is shown is on the 1865 census of Manchester, Ontario County, New York, and on the 1870 census of Dorr, Allegan County, Michigan. So is seemed possible.

Then I searched for information on Wm. McComb, and found he arrived in Muskegon about 1878. I now feel this child must be a niece, nephew or cousin of Belle. There were many Jones and Lamunion family members in the area.

Wow! Here’s a big family, even for the time. There are nine children here, just looking at this bunch makes me tired. Imagine hauling water for this gang, or cooking, or washing. I guess a few of the boys could help, but this is a crowd.

It looks like the two boys in the front might be twins. If you know who this family is, please contact me.

Well, I’m in a hurry now. I have posts of items from the box scheduled through the reunion date. I want to post all items before the reunion next Sunday August 2, 2009, so I’m working to make that happen!

These are all photos of people I can’t identify. They must be friends or family of Belle; if you can identify they, or if you own matching photos, please contact me.

3-68

The man pictured in item 3-68 seems quite nice, and pretty well dressed, compared the the subjects in the majority of the photos. He might be a Lamunion, a Jones, or even an unrelated neighbor or friend.

3-69a

3-69 is a more up to date photo of a child.

3-82

3-82 is a photo post card of a young child.

3-83

3-83 is a nice looking family. They appear to be dressed for church, or some special occasion.

3-85

3-85 is a casual photo of a young lady.

These are postcards of a young girl.

3-72a

3-73

There is no writing on the back, which is the same for both cards.

3-72b

I do not know if the subject of these cards has any relationship to Belle. The only Iowa connection that I know of for this family is John P. Fenton and his wife Susie M. Burdick. They migrated to Iowa from Michigan about 1887. John Pl Fenton died in Audubon County, Iowa on 23 March 1891, and Susie and three children returned to Michigan on or about 25 December 1891.

Nellie, a daughter the Fentons adopted 4 December 1880, remained in Iowa. She was born 8 October 1873, and married Frank East on 29 June 1891 in Audubon County. I have no further information on the Easts or any family they may have had.

Although these cards were apparently made later than 1891, they might represent a connection back to Michigan for the family.

Here are some photos of men. I don’t know who any of them are.

This guy looks like a Paul Bunyan type!

This one is proud of his vehicle.

3-58

This one is a tough guy

So, if these are your ancestors, or you wish to tell me what family tree they belong on, please contact me.

A child near a house.

3-60a

The back doesn’t help, except to let us know that the photo was printed in Manton, close to Belle’s home.

3-60b

Another child near a house. Same siding and window trim.

From the back:

This child is Dalena Beryl, a little girl with no last name. If you know who she is, please leave a comment, or e-mail me.
