The Wilhoyte Scrapbook

This scrapbook was a super awesome find full of pictures of the Wilhoyte boys and scenes from life in Prospect, Kentucky. I have only included the pictures of identified people, but intend to sent this to the Oldham County Historical Society for those interested in viewing the entire album.

The Wilhoyte boys were Hewitt, Howard and Richard. They seemed to have traveled often as many photos are from out of state adventures! It is unknown which of the boys this album belonged to, though it is obvious that they all got along well.

Richard and Hewitt were brothers, and Howard may have been a cousin. Other individuals in the scrap book likely lived close by. The scans are slightly blurred as it was necessary to enlarge them for visibility. Most of the original photographs are very small.
