Willhite Photo Collection
This is what I have for old photos. If you have anything to add, scan it and email it to me, I will put it in this collection. This website will remain online at least until the year 2099. Remember, the underlined names are links to the photos for that person or family line.
William H. Wilhite #15 is married to Annie R Dawson but it isn't clear if she is in the picture. Possibly the lady to the left of #14. Lady# 14 could also be the oldest Smith Willhite daughter Isabella, with her husband in front of her (James Lew Harris). The twins Jennie and Jessie are also likely the girls with the same dress in the back right.
