I am related to this line of the Drinkwaters.
I realize this posting is over ten years old but I am hoping someone related to this line of Drinkwaters will see my post and response. I got some of those pictures from Diane Whitworth in Oct 2002. I did talk to Diane and she told me she got the pictures from a photo album she won in an ebay auction. She said the seller was from San Francisco.
I believe the people in those pictures are descendents of John and Mary Drinkwater who immigrated to Grant, County, Wisconsin from Bugsworth, Derbyshire, England between 1841 and 1850.
One of John and Mary’s sons William (married to Jane Watchorn) had a daughter Jennie Francis Drinkwater. Jennie married Henry A Arthur in Oct 1900. They moved west stopping in Kansas and Nebraska (about 5 years) before settling in Los Angeles, California.
