More from Karen with this note:  Source: Obituaries of Mary Jo Johnson found in Crawfordsville District Public Library.  We appreciate Mary Jo's willingness to share these.

 

Photos :

This batch of photos were donated by Mark Mohr and came from an old photo album once owned by his aunt Dorothy Madden Hobson Luther.  They appear to all be from the same era and would make one believe they might have been senior pictures.  If you can identify any of them, do let me or Mark know.

  • New Bridge Construction Begun    -    The first rock for the new bridge in 1912.  More on the old bridge.  It was built in 1866 and destroyed by fire at 1:20 a.. m. on April 10th 1910.  In the photo left to right is Edward Fisher (not sure which one, it could be Edward Guy Fisher), James "Jim" Lowe.  He is my maternal great-grandfather, his daughter is Minerva Abigail Lowe, is my grandmother married to Jacob Allen Fisher. Next is Tom Jacks (seated), don't know anything about him.  And the "boss" far right is unknown.
