One of the photos, I was told was circa 1920s. It's the group family photo, from left to right, Isaac, Aaron, Priscilla (behind Aaron), William and Ruby Hensley. Priscilla is my great-grandmother and these are four of her natural children.

The photo of John Hensley, Sr. -- he's the husband of Priscilla. He was my great-grandfather.

Peter Lee was the husband to Jessie Lee and Sophie Lee was their daughter. Gertrude Arnold holding my mother, Elizabeth Hensley, and next to them is Mildred Sage. I would place this one circa 1930, as my mother was born June 1930 in Kotzebue.
