MAHWAH, N.J. -- Any Youngs, Hagermans or Bodines out there? The archives staff at the Mahwah Museum is currently processing a large collection of photographs from the Martha Young Kuklinski Collection -- and they need help identifying people
Photos in that collection documents the lives of J. Frank Young (1905-1960) and Henrietta Morriss Young (1909-1984) and their families, ranging from 1910 through the 1940s. There are also some older historical family photographs.
Henrietta Morriss’ mother was Bessie Hagerman, and she lived with Andrew Hagerman. The photos from this branch of the family are fairly well labeled. The photographs of the Youngs, who came from Tallman, often have no labels at all. J. Frank Young's mother was Anne Jane Bodine, and his father was John Franklin Young. His siblings were Alta, Freda and John Young.
"If you can help up put names to faces, it would make this collection much more useful to researchers," the museum notes.
