Grandpa’s Second Wife (Mix/Keesler)

06 Sep

Today’s post is a picture of John Elmer Mix, my great-great-grandfather. He was born 150 years ago (28 Aug. 1864) and died 25 Jan. 1951. According to the note MY grandfather (John Dayton Mix) wrote on the original of this photo, it was taken in 1940. The woman with him was his second wife, Winifred (Keesler) Mix.

John’s first wife, Mary (Knapp) Mix, died in 1932. He then married Winifred on 9 December 1934 in Wellsville, Allegany County, NY.

    Winifred Keesler was my gg grandmother. Her mother was Ida Mae Green, 1st marriage annulled, then to George Perry, Next was Charles Fitch, and last was married to James R. Myers.
    I am excited to see that picture. I may have another one of Winifred and John E. Mix. We had a 5 generation which we have pictures of.
