    1. [KING-TN] WORMELEY - KING Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of Lena WORMELEY (age 1 year 11 months) and Elizabeth WORMELEY (age 2 months 8 days) which was taken on the 8th of August 1895 at the Bingham Studio in Memphis, Tennessee. The photograph was a gift to their Grandmother originally. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding the girls and their family: Mary Elizabeth WORMELEY was b. 30 May 1895 in Memphis, TN to parents Ralph WORMELEY (1855-1921) and Leni Leoti PORTER (b. 1871). There were three children born to this couple including, Lena; Mary Elizabeth; and Annie WORMELEY, all born between 1893 and 1900. Mary Elizabeth married Eldridge Claude KING (1891-1974) and together they had three children including a son, Eldridge Claude KING Jr. b. 1918. Mary Elizabeth and her husband Eldridge KING lived in Johnson City TN and Erwin TN over the years according to census records. Census records provide the following details: 1910 census of Memphis, TN: Ralph WORMELEY, age 54, 2nd marriage 18 years, born TN, parents born TN/VA, a Merchant Leli P. WORMELEY, wife, age 36, 1st marriage, 18 years, 6 children/2 living, born KY, parents born KY Lena WORMELEY, dau, age 16, born TN Elizabeth WORMELEY, dau, age 14, born TN + 1 Servant I am hoping to locate someone from this family so that the photograph can be returned to their care. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley
