A wedding picture of my grandparents, Samuel Edward Sears (1876-1951) and Petronella Erma Symons (1895-1989). They married 7 April 1913, in Prineville, Oregon, and had four sons, Richard (my father), Raymond, Victor, and Wallace Sears.

Here is a picture from around 1890-1910. The two are mysterious ancestors or dear friends of my grandparents, Sam and Henrietta Oliphant. They moved from near Minsk during the 1890s and were in Brooklyn, New York, during the 1900 census. The back of the picture identifies the photographer’s studio in Minsk, Russia, now the Belarus capital. The studio had electricity, so could actually be open at night, and the photographer could tint with pastel colors as well.
