I've "rescued" an old photograph identified as Margaret STONEHOCKER
BILLINGSLEY which was taken at the McAdam Bros. Studio in Mt. Pleasant,
Iowa. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1880's with Margaret
likely in her 20's at the time it was taken. In addition to her name
someone appears to have also written a name (PICKERING) and address (Box 456
? 98065) on the back of the photograph.

Based on limited research and thanks to the assistance of some family
researchers I know the following regarding Margaret and her husband:

Margaret STONEHOCKER b. 22 Nov 1851 in Harrison, OH to parents John
STONEHOCKER (b. 24 Oct 1814 in Jefferson Co., OH) and Mary PEW (b. 1816 in
OH). She married Andrew Magee BILLINGSLEY (b. 27 May 1851 in Harrison Co.,
OH to parents Samuel Kirke BILLINGSLEY and Rebecca Fessler KNIGHT) on 28 Mar
1880 in Salem, IA. There is some indication that they may have had a child,
Clyde BILLINGSLEY b. in the 1880's which died at birth or a very young age.
Her husband Andrew died 21 Mar 1913 in Texico, NM and in 1920 Margaret was a
widow living with her nephew, Harlan M. LAMM in Carleton, NE. Margaret died
11 Nov 1922. She can be traced through census records as follows:

I am hoping to locate someone from Margaret's family so that this wonderful
old photograph can be returned to the care of her family. If you are a
member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me.

Thanks,
Shelley
