Laird V. and Sarah Wolfe Richey. I was told that it was taken on their 50th wedding anniversary which would have been around June 1902, as they were married 17 June 1852. They came to Adams County, Iowa in the Spring of 1854 and according to the biographical sketch, were the first settlers of the east half of Adams County. Laird was involved with building many of the early buildings in Corning.

A photo of my great grandmother Elizabeth Matheny Jones with her daughter Sarepta Jones Mack, Perry Mack (Sarepta's son) and Opal Mack (Perry's daughter). In other words - four generations. I believe that this photo was taken circa 1902 when Sarepta was visiting her mother (Elizabeth) on her 80th birthday.
