    The Family of Tommy and Helen Umphrey at Their 50th Wedding Anniversary
    This photograph, taken in 1991 at their 50th wedding anniversary celebration, is of Tom and Helen Umphrey and their two daughters. Left to right: Sandra Kay "Sandy" (Umphrey) Pillsbury, Thomas Samuel "Tom" Umphrey, Helen Marie (Collingwood) Umphrey, and Carol (Umphrey/Wright/Davis) Kelley.

    Helen Umphrey with Her Daughter, Sandy, and Niece and Nephew, Paul and Phyllis Allen
    This photograph, taken during World War II, was of Helen Marie (Collingwood) Umphrey holding her older daughter, Sandra Kay "Sandy" Umphrey. Standing in front of Helen and Sandy were Paul Lloyd Allen and his sister, Phyllis Ann Allen, children of Lloyd Smith and Thelma Verlee (Umphrey) Allen.

    The Lloyd Allen Family In Iowa, with Other Umphrey and Fortner Family Members
    Some of the people in this photograph have been identified. For others I have made some speculation, but have not been able to get positive identifications. Those who I feel can be identified are:
    Thelma Verlee (Umphrey) Allen and Lloyd Smith Allen, Roy Grant Fortner (apparently peering over the top in the back row),
    Margretta Mae (Umphrey) Howey, Helen Marie (Collingwood) Umphrey, holding daughter, Carol Ann Umphrey, Maude Mae (Walker/Umphrey) Fortner, and Sandra Kay "Sandy" Umphrey.

    Some of the other people in the photograph are apparently other relatives of Lloyd's.

    Helen Marie (Collingwood) and Thomas Samuel "Tom" Umphrey
    Helen and Tom Umphrey were married June 8, 1941, in Pontiac, Michigan. They were the parents of Sandy Pillsbury and Carol Kelley. This photograph was taken during a summer excursion in 1950 or 1951.

    Carol Ann Umphrey, Paul Eugene "Paulie" Umphrey, Roy Grant Fortner and Sandra Kay "Sandy" Umphrey
    This photograph from about 1950 is of three Umphrey children, Carol and Sandy, daughters of Thomas Samuel "Tom" Umphrey and Helen Marie Collingwood, and Paulie Umphrey, the son of Paul Eugene "Tubby" Umphrey Sr. and Lois Ann Thibodeau. They are standing by a family car with Roy Fortner, their grandfather. In the years I knew Roy, a bit later than this, I never remember him without glasses, so I guess his eyesight was better in earlier days.

    Relaxing on the lawn in this photograph from about 1950 are Helen Marie (Collingwood) Umphrey, Tom Umphrey, and Maude Fortner in the back, Carol Ann and Sandra Kay "Sandy" Umphrey in the front. The photograph was probably taken by Maude's husband, Roy Grant Fortner.

    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.

    This photograph is of, left to right, Roy Grant Fortner, Sandra Kay "Sandy" Umphrey (possibly Carol Ann her sister, but it looks more like Sandy, though a bit blurry and hard to tell), Helen Marie (Collingwood) Umphrey, and, sitting in the chair in the front of the picture, Maude Mae (Walker/Umphrey) Fortner. The photograph was taken in Michigan.
    Carol and Sandy Umphrey with Their Grandmother, Maude Fortner

    This photograph, probably from about 1951, is of Maude Mae (Walker/Umphrey) Fortner with her two granddaughters, Carol Ann Umphrey on the left, and Sandra Kay "Sandy" Umphrey on the right. The girls are daughters of Tom and Helen Umphrey. These are families that live(d) in Michigan.

    This might be considered a quintessential photograph of the American family in the 1950s. Tom and Helen Umphrey are standing with their two daughters, Carol Ann and Sandra Kay "Sandy" Umphrey sitting on the ground between them. It's too bad the photographer didn't worry about shadows!

    Sandy Umphrey is on the right of this photo, her sister Carol is on the right. Mazie Belles is the older woman holding the child, who is unknown, as no cousins seem to have been the right age or fit at the time this photograph was taken.

    Christmas, about 1954, in the Tom and Helen (Collingwood) Umphrey household in Michigan. The doll looks to me to be one of the kind one could bottle feed with water and then change its wet diapers.
    Sisters Sandra Kay 'Sandy' and Carol Ann Umphrey

    Carol seems ready to go roller skating in this photograph with her sister, Sandy. The standard metal skates that came with a tightening key that people of my generation had in the 1950s/1960s are now probably collector's items almost old enough to make the Antique Road Show.

    Sandra Kay "Sandy" Umphrey is the tall girl in the back in this picture; the front row are siblings, Sharon Louise Umphrey, Steven Lynn "Steve" Umphrey, and Sandy's sister, Carol Ann Umphrey.
    At the Home of Thomas Samuel "Tom" and Helen Marie (Collingwood) Umphrey
    This photograph was taken at the home of Tom and Helen Umphrey, possibly by Helen's father, George Collingwood. Sitting on the couch, left to right, were Helen and Tom Umphrey, their daughter, Sandra Kay "Sandy," and Helen's mother Margie Loretta (Allen) Collingwood. Daughter Carol Ann Umphrey and nephew/cousin, Dennis Brien "Denny B". Howey, who was staying with the Umphrey family at that time, are on the floor.

    Dennis Brien "Denny B." Howey lived with his uncle and aunt, Tom and Helen Umphrey, and their family, for a period in the 1950s after his mother died in 1953. Thomas Samuel "Tom" Umphrey is on the left in this photo, Denny B., and Carol Ann Umphrey on the right. The bow tie is particularly nifty!

    Thomas Samuel "Tom" and Helen Marie (Collingwood) Umphrey, New Years Eye About 1965
    It appears the family festivities in Michigan celebrating New Years were a bit more exuberant than I remember with our family back in Iowa. This picture, provided courtesy of Carol Ann Kelley, is of her parents, Tom and Helen Umphrey, probably in about 1965, welcoming in the New Year.
