Subject: [BARNES] DRIESBACH or DREISBACH - BARNES Family Photograph
Date: Wed, 25 Nov 2009 07:09:29 -0800

I've "rescued" an old photograph of Charley, Chauncey, and Lilly DRIESBACH
which was taken at the Chauncey Barnes Studio in Mobile, Alabama. The
photograph appears to have been taken in the 1880's with Charley noted as 8
1/2 years old at the time and Chauncey, age 11. Based on limited research I
was able to gather the following information regarding this family:

Charles H. DRIESBACK married Olivia BARNES on 2 Jul 1872 in Mobile, AL.

Charles Henry DREISBACH Jr. b. 29 Aug 1875 in Mobile, AL to parents Charles
Henry DREISBACH (b. 20 Sept 1848 in Baldwin Co. AL) and Olive BARNES.
Charles married Mary Gregg QUATTLEBAUM (b. 8 Dec 1882 in Mobile, AL) and
together they had two children including Mary S. DREISBACH b. 1904. Charles
died in Mobile, AL on 23 Feb 1947.
