Whitlow Family with their Dog 1920's

 "Kent, Altie, Vena, Manse, Jacks
Bro. (Happy Jackson) Irene, Vera,
Jack and little Bud,"

This is an interesting photo of a family and their dog taken in front of a home. It must have been sunny outside because everyone is squinting and covering their eyes! I'm not entirely sure if I've read the handwriting correctly, but if I have, they certainly have some unusual names, though unfortunately there is no last name.

If you know who this family may be, let us know in the comments!


  1. K. V. Whitlow, spouse named Altie, two children named Vena and Vera, living with father-in-law, A. T. Smith in Waconda, Oklahoma, from the 1910 Census. I could not find them in the 1920 or 1930 Census.

  2. Kent's full name was Kenton Vance Whitlow. Vera Theta Whitlow married a Jackson.

    Kenton is shown living in El Reno, Canadian, Oklahoma in 1930 and 1940.
