Hi Joyce,

   This is my mother's grandmother Jessie Mae Watkins (Shults).  The photo is a copy that I scanned into my computer so I don't have any photographer info on it.  The photo would have been taken about 1891.  Thanks for keeping such a great site.

Sorry, I guess I wasn't thinking about what info you would need.  Jessie is the daughter of Avilla Watkins and I believe Polly Cox from Monroeton, Bradford County - Pa.  I've also seen ( foot of Plane off rt.21 in 1900 Monroe Township directory of Bradford County, Pa. )  She was married to an unknown Northrup and had a child Ruby with him and later married Henry H. Shults my great grandfather who was a section hand at the Barclay RR in 1900.  At this time the couple and several of their children lived with Jessie's parents.  I'm also including a snapshot of Henry when he was older.  He was from the same area but the photo was taken at my grandparents place in Bath, NY.  All the others in the photo are unknown to me.  Henry is the son if Godfrey H. Shults and I believe Arrilla Northrup.  He also has a twin brother Fred.

Hi Joyce,

    I just received these photos today from my aunt.  Unfortunately they were small photos arranged on a page and copied for her from a cousin.  We do not know exactly who the people are in the photos but they were kept in Jessie Mae Watkins Shults bible.  So I would guess they are some of her children and grandchildren.  I'm forwarding them along because my aunt was also given a photocopy of the backs of the photos.  Bottom left says copyrighted 1889.  The family was located in Bradford county, usually around Monroeton, Powell, Towanda & Wysox.  I hope these will be helpful.  My family seems to be so small and hard to locate I was hoping by submitting some of this info that I'm currently collecting that I will eventually run into some other long lost part of the family.  My mother, 3 siblings and 1 cousin are all that are left of the direct family and they know so little.
    As I am currently stuck with dial up sevice I can't send many files in an email but I have a couple of pages from Jessie's bible as well.  I'll send them in a seperate email.

Joyce Tip Box -- December 2007 -
If you are not navigating this Tri-Counties Site via the left and right sidebars of the Current What's New page you are doing yourself a disservice. You can get to any place on the site easily by making yourself familiar with these subject and place topics. Try them all to be as familiar with the site's 16,000 plus pages as you can. Stop groping in the dark and take the lighted path. That's also the only way you'll find the search engines for the site or have access to the necessary messages I may leave for you. Make it easy on yourself.
