More Photos From the Barn

The new Miller horse trough. Howard Caffee, Ruth, Helen, Em, Carl Miller. (c1925)

Here are a few more photos from the group that I found in the Miller barn a few weeks ago. My Aunt Ruth was able to identify individuals in a few of the photos last weekend.

We had quite a discussion about last week’s photo that was labeled Gertrude Brewster Miller. A couple of us thought the girl in the photo looked like Gertrude’s mother Pearl but Aunt Ruth believes the girl in the photograph is indeed Gertrude. Brian pointed out that the chair Gertrude was sitting in is identical to the chair Augusta Brewster was photographed sitting in. Augusta was born in 1897 and Gertrude was born in 1896. They were close in age and both photographs may have been taken by the same photographer.

The above photo was taken after pouring a horse trough at the Miller farm. The Millers and Caffees were neighbors and Howard’s wife Caroline was my Grandpa Miller’s sister.

Vernon Caffee, son of Howard:

Mike and Maggie (Rueck-Miller) Kallenberger with children Ardella, Wesley and John. Maggie was Grandpa Miller’s half sister. Aunt Ruth remembers that she enjoyed eating pop corn at Aunt Maggie’s. She also said that the Kallenbergers had a Delco system for generating electricity:
