I just received a box of old photos !!!!!

My Grandmother was Essie Nona (Lay )Trotter born in Princeton, Mo, 1899.
Essie's parents - John William Lay and Lucinda M. (Smith)
Essie's mother had two sisters - Hattie Hart - (Hester Ann Smith) & Ettie Wyatt ( Etta Sophia Smith)

I believe some of these photos made the trip to Oklahoma in a covered wagon with the John Lay family and some were mailed from the two sisters to Lucinda and family in OK. I think I have photos of Hattie & Ettie with their children. Perhaps someone has an old photo of my Lay{Smith} family that were sent back to these sisters in Princeton. Let's share!

PLEASE LOOK on the back of your old photos for these names!

John and Lucinda M. LAY
Names of children born in Princeton:
William Freeman Lay b.1889
Alfred Franklin Lay b.1892
James Oliver Lay b.1894
Earl Linwood Lay b. 1896
Essie Nona Lay
Joesph Lemuel Lay b.1901
Names of children born in Oklahoma:
Roy Efton Lay b.1906
John Carl Lay b.1911
Howard Elmore Lay b. 1913

I would love any information on the LAY, SMITH, HART. WYATT families.

Thanks, Lynette Trotter
