I have two original Cabinet Card photographs of the Hess family, one of “Maude & Edward Hess” and one of their son “Roy E. Hess”, and I’d like to get them back to descendants or family members. Photos were taken in Racine (Racine Co.) WI, and Maude and Edward look to be about 25-30 while Roy in his picture is about 1 year old. I suspect the photo of the parents is their wedding photo.
I found Roy E. Hess in SSDI showing birth 20 Mar 1910; died 10 Mar 1995 last of Racine. SSDI shows Edward I. Hess born 28 Feb 1878 Racine Co.; died Jan 1881. 1910,1930 & 1940 censuses of Racine, WI show parents and son and in a Family Tree, Maude A. Smith Hess is shown with birth 19 May 1880 to Andrew A. and Caroline Smith. Maude died 19 Jun 1950 Racine. Roy in 1940 census was an architect and college graduate.
Get back to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are related to Edward I., Maude A. or Roy E. Hess.
