Lunsford Yandell Park and Family


This photograph, taken about 1893, came to this site from Karen Hansen, who got it from her mother Isabel, who got it from her mother, Ethel Sloan Park Richardson. The image was damaged and murky, but Kirby, Karen's brother, managed to enhance it digitally. Scroll down for a caption identifying the Park family members as provided by Ethel. For the full size, which overflows some screens but provides better face recognition, click anywhere on the photo.

From the left: Catherine Wilbur Park (probable), Lillian Isabella Park, and Ethel Sloan Park; the five children on the porch are Richard Lunsford Park leaning), Edward P. Martin, Alma Louise Park (pinafore), William A. Martin, Malcom R. Martin, and Nellie Martin. Behind the children are Isabella Ann Eliza Barron Park, Lunsford, Robert Willie Park, Austine Appling Park (probable; R.W.'s wife), Lena Yandell Park Martin (holding post), Edward Holmes Martin, Claude Adair Park Sr. (wearing hat), Eula Mae Park, and Annie Laura Moore Park. And Carlo.

The photo is remarkable in that all of Lunsford's and Isabella's children are present except the one that died in infancy (Eva Beatrice).
