Viola (Bausman) Davis Hickman’s Unidentified Photos
Do you recognize the people in these pictures?
When my great-grandmother died, she left a lot of beautiful family photos; unfortunately, many are unidentified. After her death, my grandmother, Marian (Bohnsack) Davis acquired them. She let me go through the pictures, but did not know who most of the people were. I don’t know why I never asked my grandfather about the people in the photos.
I would love to identify the people and reunite the photos with family members who will appreciate them.
Possible surnames for the people in these photos are: Davis, Bausman, Brandt, Schoenhard, Hicks, Hebenstreit, and Hesselbacher. Viola Bausman grew up in Guilford Twp in Jo Daviess County in Illinois, USA. She lived most of her life in Scales Mound, Illinois.

You must be so excited to have so many pictures to investigate. The challenge is half the fun. I also wanted to say that I came across your website this week and love the look and overall feel. I am excited to start receiving your updates.
I read your Family History Through Food a few days ago and think that’s a great way to learn about family history. Both my grandmothers were great cooks, and my mom’s a wonderful cook. I’m an adequate cook, but a much better baker. I’m going to start asking my aunts for recipes.
Sounds like a great way to get more family information from your aunts!
