50th Wedding Anniversary Picture for Michael and Sally Miller, September 14, 1903

submitted by Ray LaFever --11 December, 2006

This picture was in my Grandmother Anna Bell Barnhart LaFever's home for years (currently my aunt, Laura LaFever, has the original). It shows family members who attended the 50th wedding anniversary celebration for my grandmother's maternal grandparents, Michael Miller (1828-1915) and Sally Ann McCune (1832-1915). Michael was born in Scotland, emigrating to the United States with his family when he was a child. Sally Ann was born in Bovina. Michael and Sally farmed in Bovina for many years. They lived to celebrate their 60th anniversary in 1913 and died three months apart in 1915 in Bovina. Michael and Sally had four children, John (1855-1920), Belle (1857-1932), Kate (1860-1930) and William (1869-1940). Three of their children married. John married Bertha Anderson and had four children. Kate married Jeremy Barnhart and also had four children, including my grandmother. William married Mary Boggs - they had no children.

The picture was taken on September 14, 1903 in Bovina. The picture includes all of their children and grandchildren, as well as several of their siblings, nieces, nephews, etc. The captioning information was provided by my great-uncle Ralph Barnhart (number 7 in the picture) in 1980. Ralph died in 1988, age 96. I've added some information to help clarify the relationship to others in the picture. If anyone can identify the blanks, I'd really appreciate it.
