The Garner Family

The above photograph depicts John Jacob Garner (1873-1958), his wife Lydia Mae Royer (1871-1950), and two of their four children. The Garners were members of the Church of the Brethren and Lydia appears in traditional headgear as she does in the photograph seen here on her findagrave.com memorial page.

Sitting on her mother’s lap is Gladys M. Garner (1905-1910). I was unable to find out how Gladys died at such a young age. She was enumerated in the Census of 1910 on 20 April 1910 in Manchester, MD. She is buried with her parents, brother Jonas Sterling Garner (1910-2009), and sister Rachel H. Garner, in Meadow Branch Cemetery, Westminster, MD (61586941, 61586920, 42503690, and 6158696.)

To the left is her brother, Ralph L. Garner (1902-1989). He married Anna V. Myers (1908-1983) in 1930. They did not have children. They are buried in Pleasant Valley Cemetery in Westminster, MD. Their obituaries are here, 54071591 and 54071594.

It is worth noting that many members of the extended family spent their last years living in the Fahrney-Keedy Memorial Home.

Below is the back of the insert to the frame which contained the photograph. I bought the photograph and insert at an antique store in the Baltimore neighborhood of Hampden in October 2016.
