Here is a photo of William "Henry" Poore and his surviving 6 children after the death of his wife, Hattie May, in 1901. Their first born child, William died in infancy. Florence stands in the back. Frederick is left of his Father, and Andrew is on the right. In the front row left to right are Ned, baby Leroy, on his father's lap, and Erma Imogene. Henry Poore looks to be a handsome man and Erma has a determined look about her even at age four or five. The children appear to be well-dressed.
The photo was taken in Ainsworth, Nebraska about 17 miles
west of Bassett, Nebraska, where Hattie's relatives lived, including her mother, Sophia
Matilda, and her sister
Minnie. This photo
looks like it was taken about 6-8 months
after the death of Hattie judging by
the baby's age. It makes me
Hattie died of complications of childbirth
born. When I enlarged this
photo with Adobe Photo
looked as if Henry has a bandage on his right
