Boone County Photo Gallery - Unidentified Photographs

I love old family photographs, they are one of my most cherished items! Having the ability of being able to connect a face to our written genealogy brings real life to the pages. I hope you will discover a photograph of your ancestor in this gallery, and I also hope you will share your old family photographs with us. Use the Submit Data link on the top of the page to send copies of your photos. Any old photographs with a Boone County connection are welcome ... individuals, buildings, houses, geographical locations, cemeteries, gravestones, etc. The only requirement is that we do not post photographs of living individuals without their consent, and usually only photographs of individuals taken more than fifty years ago, and thus of more genealogical interest.

Do you recognize someone in the Photo Gallery? Can you add more information? Send me your comments and I'll add them here and on the photograph entry.

Two Sisters - ca 1920's   NEW!

We don't know for certain if these little girls are sisters as they are unidentified. Their dresses and little bob haircuts tell us this photo dates from the 1920's. Do you think the elder girl looks like the same girl in the "Brothers & Sisters" photo below, front row left side??

Possible family names are: Shoaf, Graves, Ballard, Joseph, Johnson or McCreight.

Young Lady with Ringlets - ca 1915   NEW!

This young mystery woman looks as if she may have red hair ... what do you think? She's wearing a large cross around her neck and a ring on her finger. The dress with the big sailor collar and the large bow in her hair indicate she's probably a young lady in her teen years. Maybe this is a high school graduation photograph.

Possible family names: Shoaf, Graves, Ballard, Joseph, Johnson or McCreight.

Young Lady in White - ca 1915-1925   NEW!

Nothing is known of this pretty young lady. She's wearing what appears to be a white dress, so perhaps this is a high school graduation photograph. Could she possibly be in the photo of the children below, front row right side, at a younger age??

Possible family names: Shoaf, Graves, Ballard, Joseph, Johnson or McCreight.

Brothers & Sisters - ca 1910-1920   NEW!

The two young ladies in the photo on the left appear to be sisters, and due to their dresses and hairstyle I would estimate this photograph was taken between 1910-1915. The children in the photograph on the right might all be siblings or perhaps some cousins included. Due to their outfits, I would estimate the date of this photograph to be 1915-1920.

Possible family names: Shoaf, Graves, Ballard, Joseph, Johnson or McCreight.

Graduation Day - ca 1920's   NEW!

It appears that this young man is holding a scroll indicating this may have been a graduation photograph. He's wearing short pants and looks quite young, so he may have just graduated from elementary school. Is it possible that he is in the photo of the children above front row center at a younger age??

Possible family names: Shoaf, Graves, Ballard, Joseph, Johnson or McCreight.
