Will and Bessie Pentecost in 1920 -- Post 570 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

An Auble cousin gifted me with a photograph album of her family several years ago which included quite a few photos of my grandmother, Emily Kemp (Auble) Carringer and her parents, Charles and Georgianna (Kemp) Auble.

Included in the photo album, created by Bessie (Auble) Pentecost in about 1930, was this intriguing photo:

This photograph is of Will and Bessie (Auble) Pentecost taken in about 1920.  It may have been taken in San Diego, or almost any place else!

They were married in 1903 in Danville, Illinois.  Bessie Auble (1881-1969) was the daughter of William A. and Mary Louise (Thompson) Auble of Terre Haute, Indiana, and the first cousin of my grandmother Emily Kemp (Auble) Carringer, daughter of Charles and Georgianna (Kemp) Auble. William and Charles Auble were brothers, sons of David and Sarah (Knapp) Auble of Terre Haute.

Bessie (Auble) Pentecost is my first cousin two times removed.  

Several years ago, while doing Auble research, a descendant of Will and Bessie (Auble) Pentecost contacted me and offered the album to me, telling me that it had many photographs of the family of my grandparents (Lyle and Emily (Auble) Carringer).  I have kept the album intact in case she ever wants it back, but have digitized many of the photos of my Carringer and Auble families.
