A Picture is Worth More Than a Thousand Words (Pt. 2)

I am blowing the dust off of these old images of the Broome family and allied family members to reveal the identities and likenesses of those individuals who may never have been seen by their descendants.  I hope that by posting these images and names that some of their descendents will have the joy of discovering more about their ancestors. (The John Thomas Broome family images are seen in the previous post.)

It is also fascinating to see how people lived and what was important to them, so these images are interesting in their own right to be viewed by everyone.  I hope you enjoy them!

A tribute to a lost loved one. I wish I knew who he was. The letters on the back look like MB.  It could possibly be a tribute to Willie who died when he was seven.

  1. Idly entering ” W. Harvey Hurt, Sr.” into my browser just now, I am surprised and delighted to see this photo of my great grandparents on their wedding day! While we have some pictures of them, I have never seen one of them on this special day. I do, however, have the engraved pitcher that Addie’s brother, Wirt Harvey, gave them as a wedding gift, and this photo makes it even more cherished. Thank you for sharing these wonderful images of my ancestors!

    I could tell you great family lore of them, for we were a close newspaper family of writers (and musicians, like Addie) and our ancestry is precious to us. I am now the oldest living grandchild of Harvey, Sr. and Rose Green Hurt, and I cut the ribbons to that first Waynesboro hospital when I was twelve. A portrait of Granddad hangs in the lobby of the later hospital that replaced it.

    • I’m so glad you found the photos! That is precisely why I posted them! I would love to hear stories about them and the newspaper. I’ll send you my email. Thanks for writing!
