This photo was found
by Ernie Mabrey of Philadelphia, who's not an UM, but who was
gracious enough to give it to us.
My best guess is that this is probably Walter Horace Umstead born
July 10, 1870 in Homeworth, Columbiana Co, OH, married Margaret
Todd June, 1895, Philadelphia,
died May 13, 1947, Philadelphia. His parents were William Henry
Umstead and Samantha Strawn. Walter Horace was a pharmacist.
If it is confirmed
that he is in fact Walter Horace, I will move his picture to the
Jacob UM and Hannah Hallman page, on which there is a photo of
the young Walter Horace.
It is possible, however,
that it's another Walter whose middle initial isn't known to us
at this time.
On the back of the
photo is written: Walter H. Umstead, Aldan, Del. Co., Pa. and
Secretary Aldan Civic Association. However, all but the the name
has been crossed out.
It looks as if this picture may have been taken around the time
of his marriage, ca 1895.
