I have an original Cabinet Card photograph of “Gay Wysong – Maroa, Ill – Georgia’s April 29, 1906”, which I’d like to get back to descendants or family members. Photo was taken in Decatur (Macon Co.) IL and looks to be about age 25.
I found him in 1900thru1930 census records (and in WWI Draft Registration as Coleman Gay Wysong, born 15 Jan 1881) son of Aaron D. & Letitia J. Wysong, living in Maroa (Macon Co.) in 1900 & 1910, and in Christian Co. in 1920 & 1930. By 1918, he was Superintendent of Grade Schools in Assumption and lived there in Christian Co. 1910to1930 censuses show he was a teacher. In 1920, his wife’s name is Mary E. and living with them was her mother Clara Myers. In 1930, he is shown as a widower, with two children. Ancestry Public Member Tree shows he died in July, 1968.
