Fourth of July, McConnellsburg

 

This photo was given to me by my Great Uncle Elwood (Doc) Wilkinson back around 1985 before he died.  He said it is a 4th of July celebration in McConnellsburg, Pa.  I am guessing by the dresses that it is about 1900.  Doc Wilkinson grew up in McConnellsburg with his siblings, Mary, A. Valetta, Lenora, Myra, & Robert.  They were the children of  Amos Bender Wilkinson and Lavina (Veenie) Virginia Stottlemyer.  I understand that she taught school there.  Amos was a local blacksmith. The photo is in possession of Rosalie (Doyle) Siri, grand-daughter of Amanda Valetta (Wilkinson) Doyle and Ross Elsworth Doyle of McConnellsburg.  - Rosalie Siri, June 2003
