- Darke County,
Ohio Photographs I was fortunate to receive a well cared
for set of pictures which was collected by the late Bernice (Bonham) Koonce.
They have been passed on to me, and I will post them here so they can be
shared by other "cousins" who are interested in seeing some of their
Darke County ancestors. I feel quite lucky that over the years, several
people who were interested in preserving this history made the effort to care
for, and find "homes" for these pictures. Among those people
who took care of the pictures are the relatives of Bernice Koonce (many of
them in Alabama), Kathleen Strock and her husband, Richard, and Jeannine Keenum
who provided the link that finally put the pictures in my hands. These pictures deal primarily with
Darke County, Ohio residents along with some others who Jay and Counties,
Indiana; Miami County, Ohio.

- Susannah (Murray)Ullery, born November 18, 1844
She's my great-great grandmother, wife of
DeWitt Clinton Ullery.
I've added a new picture of her probably taken between 1865 and 1895.
The picture actually had Susannah's maiden name, Murray, written on the back.
This might imply that the picture was taken before she was married in 1866.
The studio which took the picture, Townsend of Covington, Ohio was only in business
between 1885 and 1897. That kind of confuses the dating the picture.
