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.

    As long as I can remember, Mama always kept her mother’s framed photo in the upstairs sleeping area of their home that Papa build a few years after he and Mama (Ida Crosslin) were married in Jan. 1899.
Papa and Mama bought (in Mama’s name) an acre lot located about a quarter mile from the jail bridge on U.S. 41 over Little Duck river, that served as the northern city limits of  Manchester. Papa’s only sister Hattie Ogle by their common mother, married Rev. Joseph Carroll Haley of Murfreesboro, sold the lot to Mama and Papa where Papa built a house and outbuilding where he and Mama lived the rest of their lives.”

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.
