This is a picture of my mom’s parents and her oldest sibling in 1901 taken in Indian Territory (now Oklahoma). Standing is my grandmother, Oma Elizabeth Roark York (1880-1938). Seated is my grandfather, Odus William York (1878-1950). Their infant daughter, Gladys Marie York, is on his lap. Gladys was the first of their five children. The family migrated from Harrison, Boone County, Arkansas, to Oklahoma shortly before this picture was taken in late 1901. Odus later ran for governor of Oklahoma Territory. Both Oma and Odus died in Los Angeles, California.

This is a photo of my grandfather, John William Hilbert, and his older sister Blanche. He was born in May 1894 so I imagine this picture was taken in 1895. They lived in St. Louis, Missouri.
