Large Photograph of a Family in Front of Their House, name of Lula M. Wyant on reverse

Large photograph of a family of 11 or more in front of their house, along with fancy carriage and refined horse.  The reverse of the photo has this text: This is Lulla M. Wyant.

The photograph was purchased in Maine, and I did find some Wyant families in Maine (but no Lulla or Lula), but I don't know if the setting is Maine, New England or somewhere else.  The shop in Maine where this photograph was purchased had a large quantity of photos from the prairie states and Scandinavia, as well as photographs of New England.

Researching online, I found a Lula Wyant in many states in the Midwest: Illinois (multiples), Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and in West Virginia, as well a few other states.  Narrowing the search to Lula M. Wyant gave two possible options: 

  • Lula M. Wyant in Ramsey, born 1885 Nebraska, wife of Joseph E. Wyant; 1920 Census of Ramsey, Minnesota
  • Lula M. Wyant, born 1883 in Indiana; , daughter, I believe of John Henry Wyant and Dona C. (Wiseman) Wyant; in 1900 Census of Olio Village, Fall Creek, Indiana

Hopefully a reader will recognize the house, if it'still standing and in the family, or from Wyant family albums, if it's no longer standing.  If so, please leave a comment or contact me directly.  

Thanks for stopping by!
