1910? Noah Elwood Weaver, neighbor girl, Henry Eicher, Edna Eicher Weaver, "Lane" Helena Paul Eicher, Neighbor woman
For many years, after visiting West Carrollton Ohio, to visit my grandfather, N "Elwood" Weaver in the 50's and 60's, and then attending his funeral in 1973, I have been intrigued by his character and NEW's willingness to photograph the times, and lives of the rural area south of Dayton in the early 20th Century. Here is the iconic photo of the rental house in 1909-10, prior to the birth of Paul Henry Weaver in this home at the Corner today of Walnut and West Main. During my recent trip to West Carrollton, I revisited the home, that likely in the 1910 Census, was 137 Main Street where he is listed as a Bill Clerk at a Paper Mill. (Likely Friend Paper Company in West Carrollton) He last listing in the Dayton City Directory was in 1907 as a stenographer at NCR, Dayton, living in Miamisburg.

Sarah invited me and Andy Snow to meet at the Victorian Home on Central in WC to meet and look at the venue for an exhibit featuring the work of both NE Weaver and Andy Snow.
For fun I scanned this NEW photo of a man on the Great Miami River. Not sure who it is. And here is the water of the river likely before the 1913 flood.
The simpler times at the local swimming hole. Perhaps Hole's Creek or part of the Great Miami by NEW
