I have three old studio photographs belonging to the ECKELS Family of Pennsylvania.  The photographs included in this group are shown here.:

Based on limited research I located the following info regarding this family:

William “Will” or “Willie” Plimpton ECKELS was b. 22 May 1853 in Greenville, PA to parents Rev. John ECKELS (1821-1888) and Esther Caroline LEECH (1828 or 1829-1907).  Will is one of 8 children born to this couple including Mary; Emma Jane; William Plimpton; Flora Lilinet or Lillmet; Sarah “Sadie” Amelia; Clark Dela; Charles Elliott or Edmund; Arthur Briggs; and Ellen ECKELS, all born between 1849 and 1867.

Will married Mary JONES (1859-1945) on 30 Dec 1885 in Kane, PA and they had four children including Martha E.; Claude or Claud Alan or Allen; Violet E.; and Hugh Nelson ECKELS, all born between 1887 and 1907.  Will died 9 or 12 Sept 1913 in Kane, PA and is buried in the Forest Lawn Cemetery in Kane, PA.

Evaline “Eva” M. MORRIS was b. 24 Aug 1868 in Washington, DC to parents Edward T. or L. MORRIS and Emmily RESMAN.  It appears that she was their only child.  Eva married Charles Edmund ECKELS (1863-1943) in 1888 and they had three children including Mildred; Morris Leech; and Mildred ECKELS, all born between 1888 and 1894.  Eva died 23 Jan 1922 in Niles, OH and she is buried in Cambridge Springs, PA.
I am hoping to get these treasures back to family and would appreciate you contacting me regarding the photographs and this family if you are a member of this family or know someone who might be.

Thanks,  Shelley
