I am looking for descendants of Ruben E.. Bacon and his wife Thalia Short Bacon.
They had a son named Dwight Bacon b. 1914 in Nebraska.
In our family photos I came across these two pictures with the names on the back of the photos.
I would like to pass them onto the family they belong to.
Can someone please help me??

One pic is of Dwight holding a little puppy dog.
The other is of Mrs. R.E. Bacon holding a chicken in front of the same house as Dwight.

I found the family in the 1930 census in Crawford, Dawes County, Nebraska
They were also in the 1920 census for Hemingford, Box Butte County, Nebraska

My family was the Saxtons who were also in Crawford, Dawes County, and in Alliance, Box Butte County, Nebraska.

I don't know if the families were friends in the early 1920's or what the connection is, but I would like to pass on these pictures to any descendants of Dwight and his mom Thalia.

Contact me directly at
if you can help.

Thanks in advance for any help.
