Eulice and Maude Jeffrey - These were two of the eight children of Stephen Jeffrey (born 1826?-02-13 at Coxheath, Kent County, England - year may have been '27 or '30 rather than '26) and Susan Terry (born 1831-09-07 at Wateringbury, Kent County, England ).  The other six children were Lois, Martha, Mary Harriet, Lillian May, Ollie and Stephen.  Maude married Will L. Brown on 1893-12-18.  Maude and Will are my (Mardon Erbland's) maternal grandparents.  Maude was born 1872-10-21 in Versailles.  They lived in Versailles until 1905 when they moved to Lake-O-Springs, Ohio near what was then New Berlin (now North Canton).  The photograph is a tintype.

Charles F. Freidell - Age 7 months.  This is Steven Jeffrey's Brother's son.  The reverse of the card says, "Charles F. Freidell Age 7 Months, Merry Christmas
from Charlie, to Terry
" and "CHARLES F. FREIDELL  Steven Jeffrey's Brother's Son".  There is no explanation as to why the surname is "Freidell" if he is the son of Stephen Jeffrey's brother.

The Jeffrey Porch - This is the porch of the Stephen Jeffrey home in Versailles, NY as it appeared in 1877.  This postcard was stored in an envelope given to Marsha Smith by her mother, Marion Arline Brown.  The ink writing on the card is Marion's.  The card was from Eulice Jeffrey to Mrs. W. L. Brown (nee Maude Jeffrey).  On the outside of the envelope, Marion Brown had written the following: 

"On the porch to the left Susan Jeffrey holding Eulice, Stephen Jeffrey with daughter Maud Jeffrey.
On porch at right - Mary Jeffrey and George Shearer.
Sitting on steps - Lillian Jeffrey and Will Hawley
Girl in back of them and boy at far right I do not know.  Probably their children who passed away at very young age.  I'm not sure of their names."

Note that the message on the postcard confirms that this card was mailed after the Will Brown family had moved to Ohio in 1905 but the photograph was taken years before and reproduced on the card from a tintype original. In fact this exact same image appears on page 6 of the "Jeffery Family Tree" document written by Clarice Ames (nee Jeffery).  The caption for this image in that document reads as follows:

"1877 - Home of Stephen and Susana Jeffrey - Versailles, New York. Mother Susana Terry Jeffrey, 46 years old, in chair holding their last child, Eulice Ray Jeffrey 2 years old. Father Stephen Jeffery, 47 years in chair, by his knee, Maude Belle Jeffrey 5 years old. Standing on the porch is Marry Harriet Jeffrey 18 years with her boy friend and future husband, George Melvin Shearer. Sitting alone on the porch is Ollie Jeffrey 15 years old, she died next year of diphtheria. Sitting on the steps is Lillian May Jeffrey 17 years, with her boy friend and future husband, Wilbur Burton Hawley. Standing by porch is Stephen Jeffrey 14 years, he died 5 years later of appendicitis."

Eulice Ray Jeffery (b. 1-MAR-1875 at Versailles, NY and d. 11-AUG-1952 at San Diego, California) is the man on the right. He is the son of Stephen Jeffery and Susan (nee Terry). Two notations can be seen on the image. They read: "Jeff Photo" and "-AT- Wiley, WASH. -1917-".  The Reverse side of the source photo reads, "These are some last years pictures. Will send some new ones soon --- Jeff".  "Wiley" refers to Wiley City, Washington state, which is about 40 KMs NW of Sunnyside Washington, where Eulice was living at the time of this photo.
