Walsh-Eversole Family Photo

Mrs Walsh and GrandchildrenI believe this photo to be of Matilda Walsh (1841-1912) and her grandchildren – two of whom are Mildred B Eversole (c 1901 – ?) and Marion Eversole (1905-1923).  Matilda (aka Tildie) was the wife of Richard Walsh (1839-1899) and both are buried in the Woodland Cemetery in Buckley, Illinois.  Her daughter was Catherine E Walsh Eversole (1875-1960) who married Hardy A Eversole (1871-1949).  The picture was found in the home of a great aunt of mine and on the back was written “Mrs Walsh & grandchildren – Hardy Eversole children.  The puzzling thing is that there are three children and I believe that Hardy had only two.  There were also two pictures of Matilda Walsh alone – taken at two different times.  I am not – at this time – aware of any familial connection between the Walsh or Eversole family and the Hollingsworth family.  They may have been neighbors on the farm.  The Walsh family lived in Artesia Township, Iroquois County, Illinois in 1880 and had 7 children in the household at that time – David H 13, Robert C 11, Hanorra 10, Allen E 8, Mary M 6, Catherine E 5 and Alice G 3.
