    This is the wedding photograph of Dave and Margretta Howey. They were married November 1943. Margretta (1920-1953) was a native of Iowa, Dave a native of Michigan. They had a son, Dennis Brien "Denny B." Howey. Margretta died in 1953, Dave in 1981.
    A Walker Family Reunion in About 1946
    A Walker Family Reunion in About 1946
    Based upon the ages of those who are children in this photograph, it was likely taken in about 1946. Several family members helped in its identification (I am a bit unsure about several of them). This photograph was provided courtesy of Carol Ann Kelley. Several persons could not be identified positively due to their placement or the overall quality of the photograph, and one child does not seem to fit at this date with family members, but generally it is correct.

    Those who were at this reunion were: Gerald Wayne Kimble, Jennie "Reil" (Hannah) Walker, Verona Violet (Dotson) Walker, Leonard "Max" Dotson, Elaine Ida (Brown) Dotson, Theodore Roosevelt "Ted" Dotson, (Probably) Paul Eugene "Paulie" Umphrey Jr., Paul Eugene "Tubby" Umphrey Jr., Lois Ann (Thibodeau) Umphrey, Zella "Myrtle" (Walker) Dotson, Margaret Leora (Lesher) Walker, Wilda Maxine (Walker) Thomas, Wilda "Marguerite" (Wyerman) Walker, Elizabeth Etta "Betty" (Hatt) Walker, Samuel Clinton "Sam" Walker, William David "Bill" Walker, Doris Idella Walker, Thomas Clifford "Cliff" Walker, Mazie Ella Walker-Belles, Unknown (Possibly Vera Marie "Jakie" Walker), David Floyd "Dave" Howey, Margretta Mae (Umphrey) Howey, Flossie Zella (Walker) Russell, Ted L. Belles, Jerry Dean Walker, Gary Lynn Walker, George Percy Walker, Robert Charles "Bob" Walker, John Franklin Russell, (probably) Jean Louise Walker, Carol Sue Belles, and Samuel Nathaniel "Sam" Walker.

    Helen Marie (Collingwood) Umphrey is on the left with her young daughter, Carol Ann; to Helen's right is David Floyd "Dave" Howey and his wife, Margretta (Umphrey) Howey. Margretta appears to be pregnant in this photograph, dating it to between 1950/51.

    David and his brother-in-law, Tom Umphrey, posed in front of this same car in another photograph, probably taken the same day. This shot of Dave and Margretta was probably taken in about 1950.

    A Four Generation Walker, Fortner, Howey, Photograph
    In 1951, probably the summer, this photograph was taken of Samuel Nathaniel "Sam" Walker, his daughter, Maude Mae (Walker/Umphrey) Fortner, her daughter, Margretta Mae (Umphrey) Howey, and the newborn Dennis Brien Howey, who is known as "Denny B." The photograph was taken on the side of the house where Sam and Reil Walker lived. Margretta Howey would die in 1953.

    This photograph of Denny B. Howey and his dad, Dave, was taken after the death of Margretta Mae (Umphrey) Howey in about 1954. For awhile after Margretta's death, Dennis lived with the family of Tom and Helen Umphrey; this was during that time period. Provided courtesy of Carol Kelley.
