|"Jacob Umstead & Family Esther & Harvey not here nor Martha." William Lloyd Umstead stands behind his mother per Donald Deibert.
Based on number and names of children, I'm fairly certain that this is the family of Jacob Henry Umstead (1858-1940) and Ida Amelia Hester.
Children in the family picture: Charles
Reuben born 1883, Dora May born 1886, William Lloyd born 1889,
John Edgar born 1895, Simon Mearl born 1898, Sarah Florence born
1901, Harry Hester born 1903.
Children not pictured: Martha Rozilia born 1906, Esther Marion born 1909, Harvey Calvin born 1912. The family picture was apparently taken around 1903.
Donald Deibert, a descendant of our
former orphan Jacob of Montour Co, PA, found this page and sent
the picture below of William Lloyd Umstead and his wife Clara
Belva Kinney. Jacob of Montour has been circumstantially
connected as son of P Jacob Umstead
and Nancy Ann Tyson. P Jacob was son of Jacob Umstead and Ann
Adams. The reasoning is that we know P Jacob had a son Jacob,
about whom we had no further information. And we know that P Jacob's
kids moved west to various areas in Pennsylvania. The dates worked
well with Jacob of Montour. All that said, the connection is still
circumstantial, so if anyone can find documentation to prove or
disprove it, that would be great.
