Edwin (E.T.) Condon Gallery

  Condon Tree Edwin Thomas Condon Family Tree
ET Condon Edwin Thomas 'E.T.' Condon, 1862-1943.  However, this photo may not be of ET.

In material provided by Mary Ann Little, an unspecified aunt of Yvonne Condon Hickey identified the person in another copy of this photo as "Edward...twin of Will."  However, Edward was Edwin's twin, not a twin to Will.  Yvonne Condon Hickey identified the photo as her grandfather Will--not either Edward or Edwin.  My copy of this photo was handed down in the ET Condon family and was identified as ET----a good example of how things can get fouled-up in the world of genealogy.
Margaret Doran
                Condon Margaret Doran Condon, 1871-1947, wife of E.T.
Condon children at
                the farm Some of E.T. and Margaret's kids, from left Maurice (Red), eating bread; Nina, behind Red; Helen; Edwin.
Trouble at the farm Trouble on the porch--now the bread is on the porch (in front of Helen), and Red is crying; Nina looks concerned.  Did the Dog go for the bread?  He looks like he's trying to seem innocent.  Note the woman in the right background--possibly their mother?
Home farm The home farm of E.T. and family near Riceville, Iowa.
Home farm Closer view of the farm house
Old schoolhouse The old stone schoolhouse 1 mi. south of the farm. This school is in district 4, the Tyrrell district, and was erected in 1871.

Condon Family
E.T. and Margaret's family. I don't have identifications for most of the people. I think Red is the 4th from the left. Margaret and E.T. to his left. There is an extra girl in the photo--I don't know who it is.
