Circa 1900 photo of Ruth Alice & Earl John Boyce taken in Santa Rosa, CA
I purchased the subject undated studio portrait of a young man and woman and a young boy and girl taken by Briggs, Santa Rosa, CA.It is identified on the back of the mount in period ink handwriting:
I believe that Jennie Scott is the mother of Ruth Alice and Earl John Boyce and that her real name is Anne "Annie" Virginia Stumpf, born about 1870 in CA.Frank Frederick Stumpf (1887-1957) is Annie's brother. Annie and Frank's mother was Bridget Brannigan (1831-).
Annie married Claude Hamilton Orrick Boyce (1867-1902). The couple had two children: Earl John Boyce, born 16 Feb 1896 in San Francisco, CA, died 26 Jan 1978 in Sonoma Co., CARuth Alice Boyce, born 12 Sep 1898 in CA, died 1 Apr 1952 in Alameda Co., CA.The family is listed in the 1900 Census data for Santa Rosa (resided at 613 Madison Street), Sonoma Co., CA.Following the death of Claude, Annie married a Mr. Scott and they had a daughter, Lola Scott (1905-).
Ruth married a Mr. Tilden.
In about 1922, Earl married Roselle Sarah Peterson (1897-1989), and they had at least one child, Earl J. Boyce (1925-).The family is listed in the 1920 and 1930 Census data for Petaluma (resided at 416 Walnut Street), Sonoma Co., CA; and the 1940 Census data for Santa Rosa (resided at 649 Maple Street), Sonoma Co., CA.
