Unknown Picture
Possibly Struthers Family

From Dina Struthers-Stultz great-granddaughter of James Struthers,
"I found this photo at my father Doug Struthers’s house of what may be my grandpa (his father) John Struthers of Gillespie and John’s older brother James Struthers, Jr. around 1905.  Nothing is written on the back to indicate who these boys are so it’s simply a guess.  The brothers emigrated from Scotland to America in 1905 with their parents James Struthers Sr. and Jessie so this could be the last picture they took before they left Scotland or when they first arrived.   I realize nobody can say for sure who they are but the outfits are pretty cool to see."
If it is John and James Struthers, "In the 1910 census, they lived at 9496 Easton Heights. In the 1920 census (taken in January 1920) they lived at 118 Easton Heights (possibly same house, different numbers?).  I found the deed, #309, where they bought the Abba Street house for $1.00 from Johanna Hopper in Sept. 1920."
