My Wylde Family Photos
« on: Thursday 30 July 20 19:15 BST (UK) »
Cheery Hello from Dallas-Fort Worth Texas!

Two days ago, I received a box of old photos from a second cousin. She was kind enough to give them to me. She was moving to New Hampshire and knew that I was interested in any family photos of my Wylde Family from England.  They go back to the Wylde family of the Commandery in Worcester.  This family emigrated to the United States in 1867. When I opened the box of old photos that had been labeled by an old Great Aunt, I was thrilled to see my Wylde family for the first time. 

My great grandmother Elizabeth Barrow Wylde, the great granddaughter of John Barrow, Magistrate of Wedmore, died within a week of giving birth to my grandfather.  Her sister, Cecelia, shown in this picture, moved in with the family to help raise my grandfather and his older sister.

Her name was Cecelia Wylde, and this was a photo taken of her with my grandfather and his sister. 

I would love to have this photo restored.  I have tried everything in my limited purview to enhance it with no luck.

The little girl, Grace Andrews Wylde, died when she was a young teenager in Crafton, Pennsylvania after the family moved from Nyack, New York.  Her father had remarried and his wife wanted to moved to her home area.  She died from Typhoid Fever.  This is the first picture I have seen of her.  I would love to be able to isolate her in a separate photo.  My many thanks to all of you for helping me in this endeavor.

Here is her memorial on findagrave:

            Hi Carole, any idea of hair and eye colour?

               Doesn't really matter as these can be altered later to your preference.

A very nice restore of a wonderful photo, Tomkin  :)

HOWEVER~~~

The frame is just not right. It's far too ornate and the gold colour is wrong.  A very simple white border with  a toned outer border would be better  :D

(Nice to see you back Carole)
