Family Photographs - Post 4: Carringer/Auble/Smith Families in 1920

I'm posting old family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be wordless posts like others do - I simply cannot have a wordless post.

Here is one of the more interesting images from my Carringer/Auble/Smith family collection:

This picture was taken in about 1920 in San Diego, California, in front of the Carringer family home at 2105 30th Street. The persons in this picture are (from left to right):
* Georgia (Kemp) Auble (seated, 1868-1952, mother of Emily (Auble) Carringer)
* Mary Ann (Smith) (Chenery) Cramer (standing, known as "Matie," 1866-1922, daughter of Devier and Abigail (Vaux) Smith, sister of Della (Smith) Carringer)
* Abbie Ardell (Smith) Carringer (seated holding cat, known as "Della," 1862-1944, daughter of Devier and Abigail (Vaux) Smith, wife of Austin Carringer, mother of Lyle Carringer)
* Harvey Edgar Carringer (standing in hat, known as "Ed," 1852-1946, brother of Austin Carringer, never married)
* Emily (Auble) Carringer (standing, 1899-1977, daughter of Georgia (Kemp) Auble, wife of Lyle Carringer, mother of Betty Carringer).
* Henry Austin Carringer (seated holding baby, known as "Austin," 1853-1946, husband of Della (Smith) Carringer, father of Lyle Carringer).
* Betty Virginia Carringer (baby on Austin Carringer's lap, 1919-2002, daughter of Lyle and Emily (Auble) Carringer).
* Lyle Lawrence Carringer (standing on right, 1891-1976, son of Austin and Della Carringer, husband of Emily (Auble) Carringer, father of Betty Carringer).
* Abigail A. (Vaux) Smith (seated on right, known as "Abbie," 1844-1931, mother of Della Carringer and Mary Ann Cramer).
This is a four generation photograph with great-grandmother Abigail (Vaux) smith, grandmother Della (Smith) Carringer, father Lyle Carringer and daughter Betty Carringer. Betty is my mother.
This photograph was in the collection of Smith/Carringer/Auble family papers from the estate of Lyle and Emily (Auble) Carringer that I obtained from my mother, Betty (Carringer) Seaver after 1988. It is now in the possession of Randy Seaver, Chula Vista CA.
