Family Photographs - Post 44: Harvey Edgar Carringer

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

This photograph is from my grandfather's photo album that I scanned during Scanfest last month:

This is a photograph of Harvey Edgar Carringer (1852-1946), the older brother of my great-grandfather, Henry Austin Carringer (1853-1946). I'm guessing that the photograph was taken around 1915 to 1920 in San Diego, perhaps in 1918 at the time of Lyle Carringer's, his nephew, wedding.

The family called him Edgar, just as they called his brother Austin - they used the middle names. Edgar moved to San Diego from Boulder CO with his parents, David Jackson and Rebecca (Spangler) Carringer, before 1900. He never married, lived for a time in the Pacific Beach neighborhood of San Diego, and was always part of the Carringer family events throughout his life. In Della (Smith) Carringer's 1929 Journal, Edgar would come over to the house on 30th Street, mow the lawn, and receive his weekly pay of $5 or $10.

This photograph was in Lyle L. Carringer's 1910 to 1925 album, which was pased to his daughter, Betty (Carringer) Seaver in 1977 and to his grandson, Randy Seaver, in about 1988.
