Photo Friday :: E N Hart's Son

This series was birthed from the large old photo album I rediscovered in the back of my closet. Many of the photos are from my grandmother's side of the family. There are also unknown photos that came with the album. Story goes my dad, an avid garage saler, picked up a celluloid covered Victorian era photo album on one of his scavenges. It already contained photos of an (as yet) unidentified family. My parents put our own vintage family photos in the album alongside the mystery family's.  As children we marveled at the old fashioned clothing and settings, often wondering who these people were and what their lives were like. Of course, we thought that ALL the people in the photos were our relations! It wasn't until my mom passed the album on to me after my dad died that I learned of the mystery family residing alongside our own!

I plan to share these photos over time, sometimes they will be my family, and identifiable, others will be of the mystery family. Thanks to the world wide web, they may find their way home yet!


"Eusebius Ashby Hart only son of E. N. Hart"

Actually, first-born son but not only son. The family who originally owned this photo must have lost touch with the Hart's as they removed to the Oklahoma Territory. Eusibus A Hart was born in Kansas in 1882. He was the first child born to E N Hart and his wife Nancy. Eusibus had an 8th grade education. He was involved in both WWI and WWII. He married Hazel Sanford about 1921. Their only child, a daughter, was born in Canada. From there the family moved to California, and ultimately to Florida. Eusibus mad his living as a mechanic. He died in 1961 and is buried in Ft Pierce, Florida.

Eusibus A Hart is my 2nd cousin 3x removed.
