Nelson J. Derby, b.1844; wife Martha Trussell, b.1846; lived Wapello Co., IA

I have an original 8”x10” photograph of “Grandpa & Grandma Derby” with 12 adults and about 18 children, which I’d like to get back to descendants or family members. Photo was taken in about 1915, and gives surnames besides Derby, of Townsend, Buchanan and Hunter. Children of Nelson & Martha Derby were William Arthur (wife Lizzie); Martha Jane (husband Harry Townsend); Harry (wife Laura); Minnie (husband Marion Hunter); Lillie (husband John Buchanan); and Charles (wife Isal), and all are identified on the photo. The family members are sitting and standing on a home’s porch.

I found the family of Nelson J. Derby and family in the Wapello Co., IA censuses, and also on Ancestry’s OneWorldTree, which lists dates of birth of Nelson, Martha and the six children. Nelson was born Jan 1844; Martha, Apr 1846; William Arthur, Aug 1866; Harry Franklin, Jul 1870; Minnie Florence, Dec 1875; Martha Jane, Sep 1880; Lillie Ethel, Sep 1885; and Charles Andrew, Feb 1899.

Get back to me at if you are related to this Derby family.
