PHOTOS - IDENTIFICATION NEEDED

 

If you have family photos connected to Vernon County, Missouri that you cannot identify, please send them in to be posted here -- perhaps another research can identify the people or has the same picture with the peoples' names written on it.  Include what surnames might be connected with each picture you send and any other information that could possibly help another researcher identify them. (300 to 600 dpi jpg files are preferred)

You may freely link to this website but do not copy this information and post on other websites, including facebook. 

If you can identify any of the people in a photo, please email the information to the County Coordinator so it can be included on the website--be sure to include the number of the photo being identified.

Cherry Street), and the building had revolving doors at the time.  These may be the postal workers at the time this Post Office was built.  Can you help identify these men?  Click for a close-up of the men's faces.  Submitted by Lyndon Irwin.
