These first three images are from George Ogles, grandson of Wiley B and Ida Crosslin Ogles.
Here is Thomas Jefferson Ogles and his second or third wife, Caroline Uselton
Next is a portrait of Thomas Jefferson Ogles, (1852-1917) that is in the possession of Linda Ogles Dudiak, daughter of Aubrey Lee Ogles and Atha Manning.
Here is Thomas Jefferson Ogles and two brothers (waiting to get confirmation on who’s who, but aren’t these guys spooky!!)
This next portrait is Ida Crosslin’s mother, Elvira Palestine Horton. This picture is now in the possession of Linda Ogles Dudiak.
According to George Ogles, “The woman pictured above is Elvira Palestine Horton, wife of James Thomas Crosslin, parents of Ida Crosslin who married my paternal grandfather Wiley B. Ogle(s). Personally, I think that my paternal grandmother Elvira Palestine Horton and her daughter Ida Crosslin favored each other in looks and probably were similar in their dogmatic, and “rule the roost” ways. Wiley B. Ogles married Elvira Palestine Horton 15 Jan. 1899 in the Noah Community, Coffee County, which was on the border of Rutherford County whose county seat was Murfreesboro the first capital of the state of Tennessee. As you know, Murfreesboro is located in the exact middle of the state of Tennessee and for a few years was the capital of the state.

Here is Wiley and Ida Ogles and their family in Manchester, Tennessee
Ida Crosslin Ogles and her grandson, Aubrey Lee Ogles
Ida Crosslin Ogles and son Horace Ogles
Horace married Elinor Edgin from Dickson, Tennessee, she’s pictured on the far right. We don’t know who the other two girls are or what the occasion was.
Wiley and Ida and Atha Manning Ogles, their grand daughter-in-law and wife of Aubrey Lee Ogles. She looks to be pregnant with Linda!
I think this house picture was Wiley and Ida’s but not sure if someone could confirm that?
The rest of the photos are from Aubrey Lee Ogles and Atha Manning Ogles. A few years ago we gathered up all their photos and had Atha go through and identify who were in the photos. Her daughters, Linda Dudiak and Susie Bass, along with Susie’s daughter, Alison and I were there, and it was so neat to hear all of Atha’s memories that the photos triggered. I scanned many of the old ones and will put them in a gallery here so everyone can enjoy. These include the Ogles, Mannings, Tiptons, Crosslins, Kings and a few associated families from Manchester, Tennessee. There are also some letters George Ogles wrote home while in the military and interesting newspaper clippings. I have their collection of old newspapers with family articles if anyone in the family ever wants anything from those. Let me know if there are any of the unidentified that you can put names on.
Here’s a whole gallery of assorted family pictures…
