The topic for the July edition of the Carnival of Genealogy is The 5th Annual Swimsuit Edition!
Well I hunted and I hunted and I hunted for more recent swim suit pictures in my albums and these were the only ones I could find. Okay, I confess, so I didn’t look all that hard! I am not so willing to share my flesh with ya all ! So I have decide to show you a few photos of folks unknown in bodies of water unknown.
These photos were in family photos, so I am guessing they are either cousins or aunts and uncles (my grandparents would NEVER, hee hee hee the more I look at it, it just might be Nana and Grandpa)! The family from which these photos came from lived by water in a few places. This could be one of the great lakes, especially likely would be Lake Michigan or Lake Erie. There was family in California and Florida too. Could be the Atlantic or the Pacific Oceans or the Gulf. Where ever it is looks like they are having fun and staying cool.
Lone bather (wader?) having fun can’t tell who it is, again probably in one of those places listed above.
Time period I am guessing is in the 1920′s or 1930′s .
Last but surely not least one last bather. Looks like it might be a young woman and the same one as in the previous photo. I wish it was a bit clearer, but this one seems to have a double exposure.
Where is your favorite watering hole? Here in Michigan you have your pick, never have to go to awful far to find water. Have a safe and wonderful summer as you enjoy the water!
David Covey Terrill’s birthday is 8 June 1808. David is the son of Josiah and Chloe Covey Terrill . He came into this world in Cambridge Twp., Lamoille, Vermont. His grandfather Josiah may have been with the Green Mountain Boy’s, and we believe that he was at Yorktown with the Continental Army where he lost his life.
We find David next in Pine Grove, Warren Co., Pennsylvania in 1840 he didn’t live there long as we find him marrying Susan Foreman on 10 November 1845 in Crawford Co. Pennsylvania. Susan is the daughter of John and Susanna Camp Foreman of Hayfield, Crawford Co. Pennsylvania.
David was a teacher in a one room school house in Hicknell, Crawford Co., Pennsylvania. In the 1850 Pennslyvania Federal Census we find David and Susan in Conneaut, Erie, Pennsylvania, United States.
In 1860 we again find David and Susan in Crawford Co. PA but now he is in Spring Twp. found with he and his wife Susan are their children ,Henry Terrill 10, Clarissa Terrill 8, John Terrill 3, Adelbert Terrill 1 and, his father Josiah Terrill 88. In 1870 we again find him in Spring Twp. with Susan and their children, Clarissa Terrill 18, John Terrill 13 ,Adelbert Terrill 10, David S Terrill 7, James Terrill 1 and, his sister Martha Terrill 76.
The occupation in the census is given as farmer.
The last census that we find David in is the 1880, he is there with his wife Susan and their sons, Adelbert S. Terrill 20, David S. Terrill 17. He is now living in Sheffield, Ashtabula Co., Ohio. David will pass away before the 1890 census. At the age of 80 he died in Sheffield, Ashtabula Co., Ohio on 13 December 1888.

I have had the pleasure and joy to bring some old negatives back to life.
They were photos of my Great Grandparents and their children and grandchildren at that time. I came across a picture that through me for a loop. A picture of Great Uncle Norman wow! He looks like Dad or rather Dad looks a lot like him. I always thought that Dad took after the McCartney family, but I am now seeing that he resembles the Ogilvie/Kaye side of the family more. Posted below are a photo of both men. What do you think? Does Dad look like Uncle Norm?
