    Taken shortly after the birth of Robert Laurence Alcorn, Jr., December 1915. Photo likely to be from early 1916. Hannah Cunningham (Spencer) Kettering, age 73; Elizabeth Alice (Kettering) Barber age 46; Alta Jean (Barber) Alcorn, age 24, and Robert Laurence Alcorn, Jr., newborn.

    There is a fair amount of circumstantial and anecdotal evidence that would indicate that this photo is of Calvin and Elizabeth Barber; it was in a photo album belonging to Alta Jean (Barber) Alcorn, and has been identified by other family members as similar to one they had seen growing up that was identified as such.

    There are almost no photographs in anyone's possession of these two together; based on the scarcity of photos, one might assume that this was taken on their wedding day. In Elizabeth's diary, she indicates that she and Calvin were married in the parlor of their parents home in May of 1890. She would have been 21, he 23.

    Colorized photo of the young couple; looks to have been taken circa 1890, when they were first married. She's wearing the same dress as in the other photograph of the couple; he seems to be wearing the same suit. Perhaps the pictures were taken on the same day - or maybe those were the only fancy clothes the two of them owned.
