You are looking at a group of 2 photographs that belonged to the Bernhardy/Coulter families of MCKEESPORT, PA. & ELWOOD, IN. This is group 1 of the BERNHARDY/BARNHARTE, COULTER, ARMBRUSTER, MAJOR, HARLAN, STINE, GRAHAM, SHOUSE, REINHART, HUFFMAN photos. Please see ARMBRUSTERS to view group 2.
I did some research on these photos and I've included it in the Photo description below.
PHOTOGRAPH 1 - This is an original identified photograph of FREDERICK BERNHARDY (born May 1868 OH.) & wife MARY ELLEN COULTER (born 1875 PA.). There is a good chance that this could be a wedding photograph, but that's just a guess. FREDERICK was the son of German Emigrants FREDERICK (born 1844 Bavaria) and EVE (born 1842 Bavaria). I first find them in 1870 Marion, Malaga, OH. census records listed are FREDERICK (age 26), EVE (age 28), JOHN (age 4 yrs..), FREDERICK (age 2 yrs.) & unnamed infant son (4 months.)
MARY ELLEN COULTER'S parents were Irish emigrants JAMES (born 1840 IR.) and MARY ANN (possibly last name CLENDENAN, born abt. 1845 IR.), I first find JAMES & MARY ANN COULTER in the 1880 PITTSBURGH, PA. census records, listed are: JAMES (born 1840 IR.), MARY ANN (born 1845 IR.), JOHN (born 1864 IR. or PA) - they emigrated in 1864, ROBERT (born 1866 PA.), CHARLES (born 1869 PA.), JAMES (born 1872 PA.), MARGARET "MAGGIE" (born 1875 PA.) and finally MARY ELLEN (born 1874 PA.).
This photograph is in nice shape with minimal corner wear, some dirty spots (front & back) but image is clear. The photo measures 4x6.
PHOTOGRAPH 2 - This is an original identified photograph of EVA MAY BERNHARDY (born 1898 IN.). EVA was the daughter of FREDERICK & MARY ELLEN COULTER BERNHARDY listed in PHOTO 1. The photo of Eva measures about 5x6 and is in good shape. There is quite a bit of corner wear (see scan) and it has several imperfecdtions but little EVA can be seen quite nicely (she looks to be about 2ish).
NOTE: SINCE THIS FAMILY WAS PRIMARILY FROM ALLEGHENY CO., PA. AREAS, I AM GOING TO PUT ALL OF THE PHOTOS FROM THIS FAMILY UNDER THE PENNSYLVANIA CATEGORY EVEN IF THEY ARE MARKED WITH ANOTHER STATE.
