Clarence Haynes school photo

I can only identify one person in this old picture. The young man sitting in the middle row, second from the left is Clarence H. Haynes. He was born around 1912. He was engaged to Margaret Eva Larkey, but they never got married. She was born and lived in Sullivan Co., Tennessee. Clarence was in the U.S. Navy in the 1930's and 40's. According to old letters, he was on the U.S.S. Nevada in 1943. Let me know if you can identify anyone else.

Robert Corbett Brickey and unknown friends

Robert and his wife Margaret had a house in Kingsport, TN they rented out. It burned down and many family photos were lost. This was probably among those that were saved.

Robert Corbett Brickey is in the middle row on the left side. He went to Berea College in Kentucky, and these could be school friends, or just friends from a church group or something where he lived in Sullivan Co., TN. This was taken in the late 1920's. If you can identify any others, please contact me. Thank you!

1840 Shelby Co., IN census

Jacob Kern, line 11 of the Shelby Co., IN 1840 census, was born 4 Jul 1779 in VA and died 1843 in Shelby Co., IN. You can see a typed version of this census record here. He was 61 years old at the time of this census. He married Sarah Ryan (1780-1818), and they had at least seven children. According to this census, there was one male under age 5 (b. 1835-1840), one male age 5-10 (b. 1830-1835), two males age 20-30 (b. 1810-1820), one male age 30-40 (b. 1800-1810), one male age 60-70 (b. 1770-1780), one female under age 5 (b. 1835-1840), one male age 5-10 (b. 1830-1835), and one female age 20-30 (b. 1810-1820). Jacob's wife, Sarah, had died by this time, so some of these were probably grand children or other relatives. Their son, Isaac Kern was born 29 Nov 1806 in Shenandoah Co., Va. and died 20 Aug 1893 in Scott Co., Va. Isaac Kern married (1) Mary Catherine Houseman and (2) Elizabeth Good. Isaac was living in Virginia at the time of this census.
