I have been sorting through old family pictures and have a nice family photo of Frank Warren Haines, his wife Winifred (Petersen) Haines with their two sons Frank Warren Haines Jr. and John Barlow Haines.
Winifred was a daughter of Walter Herbert Beverly and Mary Betty (Petersen) Beverly.I have the Petersen line going back in Denmark. I have a copy of the original papers that they brought from Denmark. The papers were translated.
Would be more than happy to give it to a descendant.
There is not any date on the picture. Frank Jr. looks to be about 13 and John about 12.
Frank Sr. is sitting in an chair with what looks like a pipe. Winifred is sitting in a chair with a book/magazine in her lap. The boys are dressed in dark suits, white shirts with dark ties. There is a fireplace in the background.
I believe that the family lived in Dexter, Maine at one time and Augusta, Maine as well. I think that Frank Sr. worked for the State Of Maine in some capacity.
I wish that I knew the date. Maybe taken around the late 1940's -1950's.
I have a paper that says that Frank Warren Haines Sr. was born 1898 and died November 1959.
Winifred died in 1989. I am not sure if she died in Maine or in New Jersey where her son Frank Jr.lived.. I think that Winifred was born March 13, 1898 in Newton, Mass.
Time moves on and facts get forgotten.
The picture has some silver oxidation on it but is still in good condition.
