Phipps, Emory Family679 viewsPhipps Family

This is a picture of the Emory Phipps family. Based on information I've researched, I believe the following to be true: Emory Phipps is seated with Thomas Phipps on his lap, his wife Ida Perry Phipps is holding Delmar Emory Phipps on her lap with daughters Elva Phipps Sage and Ora Phipps Hamby. One of the two standing boys is Roscoe Phipps and the other is unknown - not sure which is which. I believe this picture was taken in 1912 because Ida died in May 1912. Any information about the individuals in the picture would be greatly appreciated. Picture submitted by great granddaughter Lynn Sexton Gallegos
