Chester Tackett

These photos were given to me by William Oscar Tackett, who inherited them from the estate of Chester "Chet" Tackett.

Chet Tackett was a cousin of my father, Leonard Carter, and lived on Carter Branch until circa 1915. I remember him well and carried on a correspondence with him until his death in the mid '80s. He was a wonderful and eccentric person.

Chet lived most of his life near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
