52 Ancestors 2020 #26 - Middle Point--Some Eye Candy - Long Island Photographs from abt 1900

At mid-point in our 52 weeks of ancestors, here are some photos I colorized. The girl is my great grandmother, Bertha C Hauxhurst (m. Chester Tyson of PA). Her father is the only other person shown, William Ephraim Hauxhurst. As in prior posts, he held quite a lot of land, and sold a good deal off to those who would build summer homes on Long Island's north shore in the early 1900s. Her maternal grandparents had a house in the area, they were Isaac Hicks and his wife Mary Fry Willis.
