Zelma Loeppke - The reverse side of the source photo reads, "Selma Leoppke, April 10th, 1927". Zelma is shown in the 1910 census of Enumeration District 177 of Canton, Stark County, Ohio,. as living with Jacob and Rosalie Loeppke at 338 Center St.  She seems to be listed as their granddaughter, although the writing in the census is not completely legible, so this relationship should be consider speculative. She is also listed as age 2 in the 1910 census. Jacob and Rosalie were the parents of Anna Loeppke, who was the second wife of Charles Erbland

Rev. M.M. Sweeny is marked on the reverse side of this photo. The photographer shown at the bottom of the frame is: "Ralph Mineart, 241 Fifth Ave.. Pittsburg, & Bellevue, Pa."  Given the location of this photographer, it is thought that Rev. Sweeny may have had some connection with the family of Terry Brown's wife, Ruth Kimble, whose family lived in New Kensington, Pa.

Ruth and Hayward Morehead.  The reverse side of the source image reads "Ruth and Hayward Morehead". Ruth (b. 3-SEP-1920) and Hayward (b. 8-APR-1919) were the only 2 children of Samuel (Sam) and Nina (nee Anirah Anges Brown) Morehead.  Nina was the daughter of A. Jay and Marion Alice (nee Brown) Hayward, who was Will L. Brown's sister.

Almeda Miller circa 1925.  The reverse side of the image on the left reads "Almeda Miller-Shorb, 13th street Canton Ohio". Almeda Miller was enumerated at 1247 Shorb Ave. NW in the 1920 census.  The reverse side of the image on the right reads, "Ruth Kimble Brown (this name is struck out) This may not be Ruth but Almeda Miller. According to Marion Brown Erbland. Marion roomed with Miss Miller for a while". Almeda's appearance is very similar to what Ruth Brown (nee Kimble) looked like later in life, so that is why the notation on the reverse of the one photograph originally confused the two people. Marion Brown roomed with  the family of Charles W. Creger, his wife, Edna M., and their children, Ralph W., Elizabeth M. and Ruth L. at their home located at 906 Thirteenth St. N.W., beginning on Sunday, March 28, 1920.  Marion's first day of work at the East Ohio Gas Co. office was the following day, Monday, 1920-03-29.  In the 1930 census, Almeda Miller was listed as age 57 and enumerated at 1261 Shorb Ave. NW, which appears immediately after 906 13th St. NW in the 1930 census listing.  Almeda Miller died at Canton, 04-NOV-1967 and was never married.
