Benjamin Emmett Boomer, Jr.
This photograph was kindly submitted by Audrey Johnson Lambert who states that the only marking on the back of this photo said "Emmit Boomer". This came from a collection of photos of the Boomer and Weston families of Hyde County. If you can positively identify and add more information about this child please e-mail me so I can update the file. Thanks!
UPDATE from Mary Jane (Boomer) Brown on Sept. 4, 2007: "When I saw this picture I literally started shaking. I remember it vividly from my childhood. I always thought it was a picture of my father, Benjamin Emmett Boomer, Jr. (dob 9/20/09), son of Benjamin Emmett Boomer and Mary Clay Gray. My father was called by his middle name Emmett when he was a child. I'm thinking that it might in fact be a picture of my father instead of Benjamin Sr. Sadly all of the pictures that I had from my father were lost. I have found a lot of information for the Boomer side but have hit a brick wall on Mary Gray. The only fact that I know is that her mother was born in Virginia and her father in Maryland. It was in trying to come up with information about her that I stumbled onto this picture."
