Wayne County Family Photo Gallery

Photos of Kimble Family and Friends on this page have been donated by Allan Joyce.  Pictures date from 1875-1900. They belonged to (Allan's Great Grandmother) Helen Kimble Simons.  She was married to Artemus Simons and they lived near Hamlin.  Among the original box of pictures there was a note written by Helen that said these are "pictures of my family and friends." Helen's family lived on the border of Wayne/Pike. Artemus' family had been in Wayne since the early 1800's.  Other families in the photos are from the Simons, Kimble, Pellett, Bingham, Chapman, Cross, Bortree, Hazelton, and probably others.  Photos submitted by Allan G.
