Attention: The true identity of the following
photo has been found!! This is Mary Elizabeth Wilkerson Clark, husband, Quinton, daughter Hester, and son Harry Clark.
Mary Elizabeth Wilkerson's parents were James Monroe and Elizabeth
Elizabeth Miller Wilkerson was the twin sister of Eliza Miller White,
The photo was in a collection that my mother Thelma Horner Taylor had
and I found when she died. I made the mistake of believing what was written on the back and it identified Mary Elizabeth
as Elizabeth Sims, Quinton as just "husband", Harry as Will Sims, Hester as Bernice Sims.
Seeing this family as the only one in our family that I knew of at
the time as having a daughter and a son about that age, I assumed that this was Newton Sims, Ruth Elizabeth Jane White and
their daughter (my grandmother) and son William Sims.
Just this week, October 2005, I have made contact with a family member
of Quinton and Elizabeth Wilkerson Clark and got it all straighted out.
Neat how this photo was in the collection of my
Eliza Miller White.
I will update all my family tree sites soon to add the new family
members. Sorry about this mix up. This is why we should "never" "assume" that the back of photos give us the true
identity of the person in the photo.
Still looking for a photo of Newton Gilbert Sims!!
