Taken around 1902.
Edessa Havenar, George O. Hine, Lucille Ritter, and Harry Harbert are then names of the subjects given on the photo.
Edessa was the daughter of Jennie (Mrs. W. E.) Havenar who was the subject of the Birthday Celebration from 1926. She married Leonard Keys in 1907 and they had five children, including Edith Keys Segraves, the famed family historian.
George O., better known as Ollie, was a bachelor for most of his life. I guess he waited until the right one came along.
Lois Lucille Ritter, who I like to call Lucy, married Edessa Havenar’s brother Don Elting Havenar in 1909. They had three children who were teenagers at the time of the birthday celebration. Lucy is labeled as “Lucille Havenar” in the birthday post.
Harry is part of a family that came from Illinois. If you looked at the newspaper clipping for the birthday post, you will see a few Harberts named. Harry is the brother to the J. Frank Harbert listed there. There is more information about the Harbert family here.
July 4, 2017 update by Van
I’ve recently come across more information about the people in this photo. Come to find out, Edessa and Ollie were an item at the time this photo was taken. I always thought they looked like two couples, but didn’t want to imply anything that wasn’t based on anything but a hunch.
1902 photo of Edessa Havenar, Ollie Hine, Lucy Ritter, and Harry Harbert.
I was corresponding with a 2nd cousin of my mom’s through the Keys family. I descend from Daisy Keys and she descends from Daisy’s older brother Leonard (she is the daughter of Edith Keys Segraves spoken about in the original posting). When I showed her this edited photo, she asked me if Ollie had married late in life or after his mother died.
This puzzled me. I asked her how she knew that. She said that her grandmother Edessa had dated a guy when she was younger but broke up with him because he was such a mama’s boy. She had to have been talking about Ollie who lived with his mom until she died. I think it was only after she died that he got married.
Raymond School in 1902 with teacher Mabel Keys
Then my cousin brought me some old photos to scan and she had one of the Raymond School that dated from 1902. The school was taught by Daisy’s younger sister Mabel and these four characters were her students. I believe Mabel is standing in the middle of the photo with a dark dress and a white collar. The tallest guy in the class is standing just behind her. See if you can make out the four from the other photo. If you want to try without the hint, look now. I recognized them, but then I noticed that they were wearing the same clothes and they were in front of the same building as in the original photo. So it looks like the photos were taken in 1902.
