This picture was taken at the 204 year Haworth family reunion celebration, August 26, 1902, Kansas City, Missouri. This priceless photograph was presented to Lowell Scarbrough by Virginia Schneider, of San Lorenzo, CA.
Virginia writes: "I obtained the picture from the Reverend Richard Haworth, of Bay Farms Island, which is located next to the City of Alameda, Alameda County, California, in about 1976. Rev. Richard was not well, but he and his wife were so happy to visit with me and help me with gathering family history, that they gave me one of the two copies of the picture they had. They also identified as many of the people that they knew. One of the persons in the picture was the grandfather (or great grandfather) of Rev. Richard, and from whom he inherited the copies of the picture."
Virginia wrote us again in April of 2005 and said she enjoyed looking at the picture again, on the web pages. She wrote that she wanted to let everyone know what she knows about the Haworths. We thank you, Virginia, for the priceless photograph.
(Note: In March of year 2003, we located the person who has the papers of William Perry Haworth. William Perry Haworth, who is seated at the front of this picture, is the person who organized the 200 year celebration. We hope to be able to catalog these important papers. Ron Haworth, editor)
(Note: At our reunion in 2013, Dr. Greg Henshaw identified this picture as being at the Kansas City Friends Church. We had thought that it had been taken in Plainfield, In.)
