Elva Lucina Ward Album

These pictures were taken from an album owned by Elva Lucina Ward, daughter of Harriet Decker and Abiram Laverne Ward.  This album is now in the possession of Sharon Poole Sherrick.  There are more pictures in this album (which I have photocopied), however these are those that are labeled as Decker's and descendents of Samuel & Mary Lovina Barber.  Some of these pictures are unlabeled, but their position in the album suggests who they are.  The two pictures of Decker boys look similar to the other pictures of George, Charles, and/or James.

As far as I know, we now have pictures of not only Samuel & Mary Lovina, but also all their children.  James Franklin Decker's  pictures are here.  There is the possibility of one more child, who may have died young, that we are investigating.
