Huntington - Lizzie


I've "rescued" two old photographs, the first is a photograph of  Lizzie HUNTINGTON which was taken at the T. C. Lawrence Studio in  Ladoga, Indiana. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1870's  with Lizzie noted as 16 years old at the time it was taken.  The second  photograph is identified as Lizzie HUNTINGTON WARFEL & Mother  (Note: Sarah GREGG) and was likely taken in the 1860's at the A. W.  Aldrich Studio in Adrian, Michigan, with Lizzie just an infant at the  time and her Mother likely in her 30's or 40's.

Based on some  basic research and thanks to the help of HUNTINGTON Family Researchers I  know the following regarding Lizzie and her family:
Lizzie Gregg  HUNTINGTON b. 8 Dec 1862, married Jacob Francis "Frank" WARFEL before  1894 in Ladoga, IN, both died in Ladoga about 1940.  Their son George  Huntington WARFEL died in Palm Springs, CA in 1961.  It appears that  descendants may remain in the Sacramento, CA area to this day.  Census  records provide the following information:

I am hoping to locate someone from this family so that  these wonderful old photographs can be returned to the care of her  family.  If you are a member of this family, or know someone who might  be, please contact me.

Thanks, Shelley
