More Vintage Family Photos

The following photos are all courtesy of Carol Herrington who has been more than generous with her time, information and photos. Thank you Carol. (Click any photo for a larger view)

I’m guessing , but this photo has to around 1905 or so, going by the young appearance of my grandfather. It seems the common trait or tradition with the De La O family is the musical ability. Many of the ancestor’s were musician’s, most prominent being Buenaventura De La O.





















From Left to Right:
Manuel De La O, Unknown, My Grandfather Santiago De La O, Unknown, Andres De La O.


Again, just speculating at this point and going by his appearance and clothing this photo seems to be somewhere near 1920 give or take a year. Santiago was born in 1886, making him in his mid thirties. Just a rough guess, maybe someone has a better idea of the time frame.

John Garza’s description on the back of the photo;
“Elvira was the daughter of my grandpa’s (Manuel De La O) oldest sister. When her parents died in 1933, my grandpa finished raising her family. Mom and her were like sisters and were very close” John Garza

Hey! My name is Steve Strohbusch, and I am the son of Maria DeLaO, daughter of Pantaleon and Eurbana (Maese) DeLaO. I'm on Facebook or reachable via cell: 414-813-9933. What a great spot you've created! Recently, my mom wrote the family history as has been gathered through many "voices" - many of them now passed. Am happy to share her knowledge and combine it with that of others as well.
