I is for Ira Gardner
In a box in the basement, Sheldon Livesay, my 2nd cousin, found a treasure trove of photos that belonged to his Aunt Jewelle. Jewelle Brown was the daughter of Victor and Cornie Rhea. Sheldon not only scanned all the photos but if they had any kind of writing, he added that also. We have only been able to identify about half of the people and there are several of us working on it.
This child is identified as Ira Gardner. My tree does not have anyone by that name and it does not come up in the letters written by my Great Grandmother. However, Jewelle kept it so it was meaningful for her.
The picture was found in Rogersville, Tennessee.
Cute baby, I hope someone will claim him.
