I have an original photograph in a 5-½”x8” frame of “Jackie Hoye, age 2-½ years and Joan Hoye, age 13 months – taken October 15, 1937”, which I’d like to get back to descendants or family members. Photo was taken in Joliet, IL.
I found the children with their parents in the 1940 Joliet (Will Co.) IL census, showing parents John A. Hoye (35), Ruby (29), John R. (5) and Joan (3). The Illinois Death Index shows that Joan Lorraine Hoye, born 11 Sep 1936 Joliet, died in Joliet on 28 Jan 1945.
Get back to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are related to John R. or Joan L. Hoye.
