These are my maternal grandparents and their first child, circa 1905, taken in Webster County, Iowa. They are Edward Ellsworth Hoover, Carrie Alice Taylor Hoover, and their son, Alfred Ellsworth Hoover. They were a young farming couple just starting out in farming in Washington Township, Webster County, Iowa. They went on to have ten children, eight girls and two boys, all of whom lived to adulthood.
