Sarah Jane (Jenny) Keyes and Jesse Merriman, with their children Edna (on lap) and Harvey ScottContributed by Mary Ellen McCoy Farr
This is a picture of Sarah Jane (Jenny) Keyes and Jesse Merriman, with their children Edna (on lap) and Harvey Scott. My mother, Sarah Kathryn, was their seventh child. My cousin, Dan Merriman, sent me this picture. Harvey Scott is his great-grandfather. I was thrilled to get it as I didn’t have any family pictures. I received pension documents for Jesse’s father Howell and was thrilled to find a description of him in a doctor’s evaluation.

  1. The pictures are not showing up in the newsletter itself as it comes to me. Does anyone know why? I can see them on this “comment on these photos” page.

  2. Based on the clothes, hair, etc, is it a close guess that the second pic (the Merrimans) was taken about 1904-08? The young wife seems pretty hip, but dad is a little behind the times.

  3. I love the photo of the children. All the hard work their mother must have done to prepare them for their portrait.
    The children are adorable.
