01."This photograph is of Bose and Mary Kilpatrick. Bose was the son of Mielda Vardaman Kilpatrick and of I. T. Kilpatrick. Mielda is the sister of John F. Vardaman, a Confederate Army veteran." So reads the caption to this picture. But which of the male children listed on the Mielda Vardaman and I.T. Kilpatrick page is "Bose"--James, Taylor, Thomas, William, or John? [John Gwin note: I see only three options: (1) Bose is a nickname or middle name for one of these five known male children (as suggested by the above question); (2) the author of the caption erred and Bose is not a child of Israel T. and Mielda; (3) Bose is a twelfth child that other researchers have missed to date.]
Lafayette Kilpatrick, left, is Wanda Lou's great-grandfather. Divorced
from Mary Hannah Wilson in 1893, he married Maude A. Blakely, right.
His son Alva (it is unclear to me at this point which of the two--Mary
H. or Maude--was Alva's mother) married Laura Edwin "Peach" Weatherford,
photo four, and eventually became Wanda Lou's grandfather.
03.Is this the face that distracted William from Mary Hannah? Actually we have no idea what prompted their divorce, but Maude Blakely did certainly become Mrs. William Lafayette Kilpatrick number two. We of course would also like to know how many and which children he had by each wife.
Kilpatrick, Wanda Lou's grandpa, fell for the lady on the left in this
photo, and she, Laura Edwin Weatherford, became the "Peach" he picked.
How'd she get that name, we wonder. And who is her friend?
How close can we get to dating this picture from their dresses and hat?
Is that arch-windowed building a church in the background, and if so, could
this be a wedding day?
