Ye Old Edwards Fence


The tall fellow in the middle is my great grandfather Thomas Edwards who at 12 years old crossed the ocean from Wales in 1854 with his parents and siblings and then crossed the plains from Nebraska to Utah. He did not remain in Utah but chose to live in a small community called Almo, Idaho.  I am not sure but I think the two fellows with him who love clowning around are the Jones brothers from Almo.

His mother is buried in Ogden, Utah and his father who lived to celebrate his 100th birthday plus 4 months died in Liberty, Idaho where his daughter lived and he was buried there in 1893.

How neat to have these old family photos. The fencing is nice but I must say the folks in this shot are the best part. That guy on the right really looks to be having a grand time.

I love it, that you have so many old photographs of your family. My family must have been too poor to have pictures taken from them. :)
Fine fence in the background ;)
Have a fine day

Such a nice old photo of your relatives. The clothes are complete different now, but they look happy and have fun together.

What a great picture, and at least your GF was behaving himself for the picture. The other two...well, too funny.
