This is a photo taken about 1900 of my great-grandmother Jane Frances (Wybrant) Flynn. The photo was taken in North Platte, Lincoln County, Nebraska, where she moved to in 1881. Jane Frances Wybrant was born 1814 in Sheeanamore, County Wicklow, Ireland. She died 16 July 1901 in North Platte and is buried in the North Platte Cemetery.

  1. Both these photos are stunning! Frances Wybrant Flynn’s photo looks older than 1900 to me. It is remarkable. And I love the wedding oufit of Mary Chenoweth’s. Could look at old photos all day long and never tire of it. Very interesting ladies. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I thought Jane Flynn’s photo looked older, also, because of the style of clothing she was wearing and the cap. Those went out of fashion years before 1900, but we always wear what we are familiar with and look good in, don’t we?

  6. Verna May Hall was the daughter of William Arthur Hall, and Minerva Frances Bevard. The Halls came to Iowa in about 1854, settling in Caldwell Township, in Exline. William A. Hall’s parents were William Hall and Lovisa Perkins. William Hall Sr. died in Bellair in 1870, Lovisa Perkins Hall died in Centerville in 1901. William Arthur Hall died in Centerville as well in 1906. Minerva Bevard Hall left Centerville in 1915 for Detroit where she died in 1948. Other collateral lines of Appanoose County are Farnsworth, Malone, Ellis, Benge and a few others. Please contact me at with any further questions or comments.
