None None Greater Erie Shaving Parlor. The proprietor was apparently C. D. Smith according to the window. The man might be Ernest Staysa (1876-?). Ernest Staysa was my great grandfather who left Coudersport, Pennsylvania, about 1900. He divorced his wife, Cora Austin Staysa, and his son and daughter were raised by relatives. Cora went to Michigan and supposedly married a Sager. I know she lived into her 90's but I do not know where or when she died. Ernest Staysa was in Holridge, Nebraska, California and Portland, Oregon. I do not know where or when he died.
Hester or Kester Ohio? A photo of a lady who does not look familiar to our family. She appears to have brown eyes and most of the family does not have brown eyes. The name of the photographer is either Hester or Kester. This lady might be from Ohio.
None Pennsylvania? I think Charles Austin is in the back row (third person from left). The lady in front of him is probably his second wife, Anna Palmatier Berry Austin. She had a son and daughter who are probably in the photo also. I assume the girl in front of her is her daughter, Viola Berry. I have no idea who the remaining people are in the photo. The photo appears to be in the early 1900's and there was a celebration as some ladies and some of the men have flowers pinned to their clothing. The girl in the front row has puppies in her lap and there are two grown dogs in the front. There is an old lady sitting on the porch in the back. These people are probably from Pennsylvania.
