Massive Enders Photo Album, circa 1850s
Posted by: Jennifer O'Rourke (ID *****4300) Date: April 03, 2007 at 20:25:12

I have a photo album of Enders decendants, and looking for others realted to.

I am a descendant of Caroline Enders Young, who is the child of a "Miller" which I beleive was once "Muller". I have a full photo album with old time photos that appears to be from the 1850s, the clothing looks to be from the Civil War era. Caroline lived in York Pennsylvania, and the rather rich and extensive album has "York, Pennsylvania" written on it.

Caroline and her husband, a Lutheran minister, moved to California around the 1920s with their three children: a daughter Carol, and two sons, possibly Bayard [?] and... ?

I also have in my possession an old soapbox, that, regrettably, is decaying, that is more than a 100 years old. The box has historical & sentimental value for two reasons: the box is from a company called "Miller Soap", [I'm assuming related to the Miller mentioned above], and it was used to house flowers from the wedding of a young woman who's last name was Miller.

This box was dated with the young girl's wedding date, presumably in her handwriting, and later passed to her daughter, who wore the flowers, and also dated the box when she got married. It then passed through 7 or so generations. I am holding the box to pass on to my grand-daughter. Please let me know if you're interested in any of this, and we can continue this conversation.

Jennifer
