Family Photographs

Emma smiles as she sits on a chair at the top of the broad porch steps, David casually on the first step below her, leaning against the rail.

David Crockett and
Emma Dean Housh

This was taken on the occasion of David and Emma's 38th wedding anniversary, in 1909. They are in Oskaloosa, on the porch of the home of Frank and Mary Gephart. Mary was Emma's aunt, and the Gepharts were another prominent Oskaloosa family. I have been told the house still exists, but I cannot say that for sure.
