Miss. Annie Wilhoyte’s Wheat Field

Like the ‘Threshing machine at Mr. Smith Mounts’ photo, this one also identifies a land owner, not any particular individuals. These small details can often be helpful though, as they place people on the map and provide extra clues in our genealogy searches. This photograph from the Wilhoyte Scrapbook is of of the wheat fields of one Miss. Annie Wilhoyte. There is, in fact, a widowed Annie Wilhoyte who lived in Oldham County, Kentucky at least in 1940 where she is listed on the census. This photo is dated as 1937 which helps prove a connection between her and the area for 3 years prior to 1940.
