You are looking at an original identified photograph of SAMUEL ALBERT "LESTER" PELTIER of WAKENDA, CARROLL CO., MISSOURI. This photograph is in very nice condition with some edge wear and yellowing and a small piece of tape or glue on the back (see scan). All in all, the photo is very nice with an ornate back. The photo measures 4x6.
I did some research on this photo and this is what I've come up with: SAMUEL ALBERT "LESTER" PELTIER went by LESTER PELTIER, he was born November 27, 1873, WAKENDA, CARROLL CO., MO. to ALBERT PELTIER (born 1849 NY) & MARY ANNETTA WINFREY (born 1848).
LESTER had the following siblings: IDA ANNETTE, OLIVE MARY, RUTH DOROTHY, JOHN NICHOLAS, NANCY GRACE & DOLLY GERTRUDE.
LESTER PELTIER married first, LOIS WHERRY (1880-1913) and had the following children: VERA E. (born 5/29/1907 MO.), ANNETTE (born 1911 MO.) & LUCILLE (born 1905 MO.). LESTER'S first wife died rather young, LESTER married again on May 26, 1930 to SALLIE MAE CLEMENT.
LESTER'S photo is most likely a graduation photo, he was a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and probably graduated from a school somewhere near St. Mary, KS. (where the photo was taken).
