I've recently come into possession of some Chalfant photo's. I'm willing to email copies to other family members. I have the following:
Benjamin, Myrtle (Story), Nelson Reid Chalfant. Photo looks to have been taken before the birth of Nelson's younger brother (@1900). Assumption that the photo was taken in Neligh, Antelope County, Nebraska. Ben's father was Duncan C Chalfant, mother was Mary Louise Hammitt.
Edwin Chalfant. I don't have much information on Edwin - he may have married. I have that he was born in Nebraska (probably Antelope County). Parent's were also Duncan & Mary Chalfant.
Clyde Leslie Chalfant. This is just a photo of him. He was married to Mamie Stewart. They had 3 children: Orville, Lyle, DeWayne Chalfant. His parent's were also Duncan and Mary Chalfant.
Orville & DeWayne Chalfant. See above. This photo was taken when they were quite young. Lyle is missing from the photo. I actually think that this is a picture of Lyle & DeWayne, Orville was born in @1901 & DeWayne @1912 - so the older of the boys would have been @11 years. He looks younger than that. Lyle would have been born in May of 1904 - so would have been about 8 years old in the picture. Could be a labeling error on my G-Grandmother's part.
I also have a few photos that are labeled simply "Chalfant", most are of young children. One is a seated couple. I'm assuming that they are Duncan and Mary Chalfant - but I do not have verification of that. Any help in identifying these pictures would be appreciated. Because of familial ties - and of these should be Duncan & Mary's descendants or somehow tied to the Beecham family of South Dakota and Nebraska (As follows in order of birth: Robert W, Eugene, Samuel H, Elizabeth, Edwin M, Isaac Cortland, Anna M, Benjamin S, Clyde Leslie, Russell (died young))
Thanks very much!
