Wordly Wednesday - Family Photographs: Post 73 - Auble Cousins

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

This photograph is from the collection of pictures given to me by my mother from the four generation Smith-Carringer-Seaver archives during the 1988 to 2002 time period:

The people in this picture, from the left:

* Emily (Auble) Carringer (1891-1977), daughter of Charles and Georgianna (Kemp) Auble, wife of Lyle Carringer.
* Georgianna (Kemp) Auble (1868-1952), daughter of James A. and Mary Jane (Sovereen) Kemp, widow of Charles Auble
* Will Pentecost (1869-1953), husband of Bessie (Auble) Pentecost
* Bessie (Auble) Pentecost (1881-1969), daughter of William A. and Mary (Thompson) Auble, wife of Will Pentecost.
* Lyle L. Carringer (1891-1976), son of Henry Austin and Della (Smith) Carringer, husband of Emily (Auble) Carringer.

Emily and Bessie are first cousins, their grandparents being David and Sarah (Knapp) Auble. Will and Bessie moved from Danville, Illinois to Whittier in Los Angeles County, California at some time, and the families regularly visited each other. Emily and Bessie corresponded regularly throughout their lives, but I don't have any of their letters.

This picture was taken in about 1945, probably in the back yard at 2130 Fern Street where my grandparents, Lyle and Emily (Auble) Carringer lived. It was probably taken by my mother, Betty (Carringer) Seaver. I may have been a witness to this photograph taking, since I was one or two years old at the time.
