Gallia County pictures

These pictures are from an album which belonged to my grandmother's sister and her family lived in Gallia County for many generations back. The pages were sent to me by my mother's cousin who has recently passed away. He had them for years and did not know anything about the content or people in the pictures. Unfortunately there are no names on the back and only a few names or writing on the borders of the pictures. My hope is to have any of the people in the pictures identified so that I can reunite the original photos with a family member.

I am also adding photos from my grandmother's album and some loose ones in a a box that belonged to her. A few are named. What a treasure to find these pictures...a part of history.

And then I am including a few pictures which I can identify and had belonged to my grandmother. Those pictures will have names.

Some of the names in my Gallia County research

Gooch, Rees, Evans, Bray, Poindexter, McCarley, Hartsook, Carr, Logue, Thompson, Langdon, Perkins (mostly Lawrence County), Denney, Young, Cardwell, Deckard, Rife, Gross, Howard, Glenn, Glassburn, and more. 

If you have any connection with any of these names, please contact me at

Since many of the pictures in my grandmother's album and picture box are taken with relatives and friends...there could be just about anybody in that age group!   mid 1880's thru 1920.  Of course some of the people were born before 1880.  One I have identified was born in 1826, another in 1831.
