I've "rescued" a photograph of the MCKIRAHAN Children which was taken at the
H. T. Martin Studio in Topeka, Kansas. The photograph was taken in the
1890's and pictures Margaret age 9 months; Charly age 5; Nellie age 7 1/2;
Percy age 11; and Harry age 13. The photograph is signed with compliments
of M. F. MCKIRAHAN. Based on limited research I was able to locate the
following information regarding this family:
These are children of Mathew Foster MCKIRAHAN (1847-1913) and Virginia E.
MCLIRAHAN (1849-1940). This couple had 7 children including, Margaret;
Percie; William Parry; Harry; Percy Porterfield; Helen Newell; and Charles
Margaret V. MCKIRAHAN was b. 13 Aug 1892 in KS and died 7 Jan 1903 and is
buried in the Topeka Cemetery in Topeka, KS.
Charles Curtis MCKIRAHAN (b. 1888 in Topeka, KS) married Eva E. REES on the
28th of May 1915 in La Grange, IL. A son Boyd Rees MCKIRAHAN was born on 24
Aug 1916 in Cook Co. IL to Charles Curtis MCKIRAHAN and Eva Edna REES. They
listed their home residence as Topeka, KS at the time of birth, however, a
late filing in 1941 lists their residence at that time as New Orleans, LA.
Another son, Charles Curtis MCKIRAHAN Jr. was born 11 Apr 1918 in LaGrange
Park, IL to parents Charles C. MCKIRAHAN (born Topeka, KS) and Eva Edna REES
(b. Minneapolis, MN). Father Charles was an Engineer at the time of his

Census information for the family is as follows:

I am hoping to locate someone from this MCKIRAHAN Family so that the
photograph can be returned to its rightful place with family. If you are a
