This photo taken about 1915 - family of George H. Patterson.

Naomi Patterson; Mary Dooley Bartels; Welchie Patterson; Emma Bartels Patterson (George H.'s 2nd wife) holding a neighbor child; Letha Patterson; Goldie Patterson, holding 2nd neighbor child (last name Mackaman, Goldie was their babysitter); Etta Patterson; Mabel Patterson; Oscar Patterson; Ivan Patterson (on pony); and barely visible holding pony - George H. Patterson.
Naomi, Etta, & Ivan are the children of George & Emma Bartels Patterson. George & Emma married 28 Apr 1908 in Boyd County, NE. They would have nine children together (2 died in infancy).
Mary "Aunt Mayme" Dooley Bartels was married to Emma's brother, Henry Bartels. She lived to be nearly 105 years old (1888 - 1992).
Welchie, Letha, Goldie, Mabel, & Oscar were children of George & his first wife Hattie "Annie" Willey. They had 7 children - the oldest two, Elsie & Jessie are not pictured. Annie died in 1905, shortly after the birth of Letha.
