Nocona Texas York or Painter Family Late 1800s by  photographer George Anthony Addison


Addison in Nocona

I was going through my grandfather's pictures that came from his mother's old trunk. His mother was Margaret Evaline Painter Ellis. One photograph that caught my attention was sent to her either in the late 1800's or early 1900's.

At the bottom was the name "Addison, Fort Sills" Unfortunately, this photograph was not labelled. Researching further I found that this was photo taken by the famous photographer, George A. Addison who had a studio in the Nocona area during the time period that this photo was probably taken.

My greatgrandmother had a brother and sister who settled in the area around Nocona, Texas. so I'm fairly certain these are either York or Painter descendants.

The photographer George Anthony Addison was a well-known photographer in the area around Fort Sill, Oklahoma Territory and took photos displaying the life during this time. - Alfred Ellis, Fort Payne, Alabama, May 28, 2007

  • Nocona, Texas Forum:

  • I remember my grandmother, Pearl, talking about Cynthia Ann Parker, the wife of Peta Nocona; and Enid Justin, who started the Nocona boot company....each Nocona boot customer had a pattern of his/her foot on file at the Nocona boot company so that custom made boots could be done without the customer travelling to Nocona...My dad and grampa had boots made that way for years when I was a kid in Wyoming... - JL Weiss Truitt, July 31, 2011
