Brentnall Family Photo Gallery

Here are some family related photos of interest.  The file sizes are somewhat large (usually around 250k per picture) so be patient when downloading as it may take a little time.  It was decided to post the large file sizes so that if you elect to download the photos for your own records, you will be able to see the detail in the photo.  I elected to leave the pictures in their original form rather than change from sepia to black and white.  I did, however, use Photoshop to repair scratches and generally improve the appearance.
If you have any that you would like to post, please send them to

Other Items of Interest:

December 16th, 1890 letter from George Brentnall to Mr. A.C. Bodenhamer notifying him of Zora Bodenhamer Brentnall's death. 
The copies on this page are very close to the appearance of the original copies.  The location of the original letter is unknown. 
Typical of the period, both the envlope and the first page have a black border - the traditional border for a death notice. 
Some of the letter was illegible.  If you can figure out what it says, please let us know so we can modify the typewritten version.
