Sure do wish I knew the identity of the family and or at lest the first names of some of the subjects. The only thing I do know is that the family had the portrait done in Panora, Iowa at the J. B. Carpenter Photographers.
I came across this copy of a 1891 Plat Map of Avena, Fayette, Illinois. I thought it would be interesting to highlight all the landowners with names in my family – here is the result:
|Alden, Ogle & Company. (1891). Plat book of Fayette County, Illinois. Chicago: Alden, Ogle.|
So now I know why the Durbin’s, Dial’s, Clark’s and Logue’s intermarried. Looks like some in depth Fayette County research is necessary.
