Here is the last photo. It is of the Lee/Woolsey (Myers) reunion from 1898. It most likely was at one of the Lee homes in New Albany. That is where they were usually held - sometimes in Millview or Evergreen.
This comes to me from my cousin - Lee Stone
|Here is a listing of people thought to be shown:

The following is a transcription of the minutes of the Lee/Myers/Sturdevant Family Reunions beginning in 1910. Minutes were taken by Grace Sturdevant. The transcription is by David Bailey. His notes are found at the end of each section in italics.
Over thirty years ago our reunions began by gatherings of children and grandchildren to celebrate the birthdays of Sally Tanner Lee on Nov. 29, of each year.
After her death on March 14, 1900 we organized a Lee Reunion to consist
of the descendants of Williams and Sally Lee. Since August 1901, they have
been held annually, at the old homestead in Evergreen.
Williams Lee, Jr. married Sally Tanner Brewster. Though altogether they had twelve children, three are not included in the count of “nine” branches: Thales/Thaler, their first - Edgar, their fifth - and Daniel, their seventh, all of whom died young.
The nine families are as follows: Lorinda, who married Henry Smith, Irene who married Robert Hatch, Welthy/Wealthy, who married Eliott Hurlbutt, Uriah, who married Carrie Lucelia Lenox, Marilla, who married Noah Lenox, Anna Rose, who married Edmund Stone Sturdevant, Mark Lyndon, who married Lucy Emma Sturdevant, and Nelson, who married Lily Bell Long.
Grace Sturdevant, family secretary, was the daughter of Anna Rose
Lee and Reverend Edmund Stone Sturdevant, who is mentioned below.
