The Lewis E DePriest Family


Gladys Campbell

There are not many pictures of young children of John and Martha.

This old photograph was found by Milton Bailey who remembered that it existed and dug it out of his sister Gladys Campbell’s things. Seated are Martha Virginia J Moses and her second husband Lewis E DePriest. The children by her first marriage to John P Bailey are standing behind them. Left to right: John, Bud, Ocea, and Kate.


Youngest son, Willie, may have died before the picture was taken, or he may have been too sick to be in the picture.


The picture may be a wedding picture of the family. It was taken about 1892 or at most a couple years after.
