I've included a photo of the back of that family picture. It reads "this is 4 generations Myself & Lillie Edward and his son Vernon Furtney" I searched these names on ancestry.com and I believe I found their family tree :) I will contact the owner of that family tree and direct him to these photos. I hope these photos belong to them as I'd like to get them in the mail to their family. Wouldn't we all like to receive a surprise like this? It would be wonderful if I had lost family photos that came back home.
This looks like such a lovely couple. The same name appears on the back - Furtney. As I look closely at the picture, she has a wedding ring on and some chain hanging in front of her. I'm not sure what that is. He has a chain in front as well and I assume that's his pocket watch. Also, I've notice in most old photos the subjects are never smiling. I wonder if they were told not to.
There is writing on the back on this photo as well. I've included a picture of it here and as you see it's very difficult to read. Looking at the original photo it appears to say "Mrs Maud Furtney Ft. Dodge, Iowa". Interesting because the back of the photo also has the emblem of the photographer A. Larson who is from Minneapolis, Minn. I will update my blog if I find the family of these photos :)
