My grandmother, Lydia Ester Remington was born in Newkirk OT, Dec 16, 1897. Her father Issac Snow Remington and many others are buried in the Newkirk Cemetery which I visited Sep 5 2009. My question, was their a photographer in Newkirk named Kinsall? I have a photograph of a your child about 2 years old which I think is my grandmother. Any information regarding a Kinsall Photography around 1900 would be useful and interesting. Thank you in advance and any assistance you my be able to provide.

Dear Museum staff, I have a photo of two people, Mr. and Mrs. Sherman Gladman.Looks like the photo was taken by a photographer by the name of Garside in Newkirk, O.T. Because it it says, Oklahoma Territory, it would have been taken before statehood. Would you have any history of the family? Would there still be family around there yet? I can fax the photo if it would help. I'm interested in hearing back.. Thanks, Dale Crawford Fort Collins, CO
