Back of photo reads: “May 30, 1923. Reunion at Franks Stop 78 Frizzleburg PA. James P Moyer, Linnie, Ernie Moyer, Helen Phillis (Ed Sahli), Theron Phillis, Joseph Phillis, Martha Phillis (Bill Kennedy).”
Obviously, they are not in the orderof the names listed on the back of the photo. Based on one of the other photos from the set, I believe James Phillis Moyer is third from the left and Theron Phillis is 5th from the left.
How they are related with approximate ages in 1923 of those listed on back of photo:
Joseph Phillis (1820-1894) and Victoria Fombelle Phillis (1824-1895) family.
– Joseph and Victoria’s daughter, Caroline Phillis, married David W Moyer.
– Caroline and David’s sons: James Phillis Moyer (42) and Ernest Bertram Moyer (39)
[listed on photo as “James P Moyer”, 3rd from left, and “Ernie Moyer”]
Joseph and Victoria’s son, Omar Grant Phillis, married Louise Maude McLure
– Omar and Louise’s daughter, Helen Ruth Phillis (20), married Edward Augustus Sahli (19)
[listed on photo as “Helen Phillis (Ed Sahli)”]
– Omar and Louise’s daughter. Martha Louise Phillis (15), married William George “Bill” Kennedy (16)
[listed on photo as “Martha Phillis (Bill Kennedy)”]
– Omar and Louise’s son, Joseph McLure Phillis (23)
[listed on photo as “Joseph Phillis”]
Joseph and Victoria’s son, Frank Irwin Phillis, married Minerva Elizabeth Stamm
– Frank and Minerva’s son, Joseph Theron Phillis (30)
[listed on photo as “Theron Phillis,” 5th from the left.]

Back of photo reads: “1917 or before on Frank Phillis Farm near New Bedford, Pa.
James P. Moyer, Aunt Sadie, Aunt Minnie, Mildred Moyer, Theron Phillis, Frank Phillis.”
James P. Moyer is James Phillis Moyer, son of Caroline Phillis and David W. Moyer.
I believe: James Phillis Moyer is standing on the left in overalls. His wife, Milcah Anderson Moyer, is sitting in the white dress next to him. Joseph Theron Phillis is on the front; he would have been about 25. That leaves Aunt Sadie and Aunt Minnie on the back row. Minnie is most likely the one of the right as she would have been about 54. There are two remaining males in the photo, but only one named on the back – the older man on the front row and the one standing on the right. Frank Irwin Phillis would have been about 52 at the time, so I am guessing he is standing on the right next to his wife, Minnie. – Kimberli Faulkner Hull
