Title

Bodurtha, Samuel and Others In Front of Second Congregational Church, West Granville

Description

Caption on the back of the photo reads "Sam Bodurtha, back seat, back of driver, with his friends/relatives, in West Granville. Building. in back a harness shop."

Image used with permission of Stephen Bodurtha, 2020. He indicates there is no date on the photo, though the picture was likely taken by Sam's son Elmer Fenn Bodurtha, a prolific photographer. Sam Bodurtha died in 1936, so the pic is no later than that.

Samuel Salmon Bodurtha was born 29 Aug 1851 in Agawam. He died in Agawam on 18 May 1936. He married Martha Morgan Fenn on 14 Feb 1877. The Bodurthas are mentioned in a number of entries in the Ives diaries, which also appear in this site.

The car appears to be a mid-1920's model, possibly a Buick.
