Grandma's Photo Album - Page 6 - Eva Jarvis McNeil and her twin daughters, Jenie & Demie
These photos were almost certainly taken in Wilkes County, N.C. They are the sisters and mother of the owner of this album, my grandmother, Nora Bessie McNeil Snyder (1900-1992).
Left: Mary Lougenia McNeil Sebastian (1908-1966), called "Jenie." Jenie married Paul Sebastian and had three children, two daughters and a son.
Center: Jenie's twin sister, Mattie Lodemia McNeil Snyder (1908-1997), called "Demie." Demie also had two daughters and a son. Demie married a Snyder brother (Don). Demie's sisters Nora and Toyce also married Snyder brothers (Tom and John). So the children of these three sisters are double first cousins.
Right: Clara Eva Hettie Ellen Jarvis McNeil (1873-1959), called "Eva." She and her husband, George Thomas McNeil (1870-1930), called "Tom Pick," had 8 children. They had six daughters, then two sons.
