I am currently working on my Family Genealogy Group page for Facebook. In doing so I realized I have a tremendous amount of photos. I decided to feature one a week. No, not everyone is “perfect” however, they are to me!
This week I am showcasing a pair of brothers, Clarence Newall (1879-1961) and William Harrison Ogan (1888-1968), They were born to Clayton Taylor Ogan (1850-1922) and Mary Elizabeth Teters (1852-1937) in Winsor, Henry County, Missouri. In 1889, the brothers moved with their parents and their five siblings to the Indian Territory in Oklahoma. They lived on the Osage/Kaw Indian Reservation where they were given land to farm on. Their mother was Cherokee. This photo was taken in about 1905. Clarence is on the left and William is on the right. It looks like they are hauling some lumber and a chair. I love everything about this photo.
