|Liston Family Tree
Graham Liston, Sr. (1818-1886). Buried in Scotland.
|On back of portrait:
'Alexander Graham Liston about 1815-188. Father of
Agnes Stuart Liston Mitchell-185. Mother of Juliet
Mitchell Wright - 1882 Clydebank Sc[otland]. Came to
America Mar. 5, 1892.'
To the left of this text is written, 'Both Born at Balmaha, Scotland near Loch Lomond'
|This photo is kind of
a mystery. On the back is written "Agnes Milton's
Uncle Will Robertson, St. Ansgar, Ia, 1892".
However, Will and Agnes were first cousins, not uncle and niece (Agnes's mother and Will's mother were sisters.) Will's mother, Elizabeth, was married to Allen Robertson, so Allen would be Agnes's uncle, but according to a Find A Grave record Allen died in 1887, so either the photo is older than 1892, or the man isn't a Robertson at all. This and the next four pictures are compliments of Janice Clapper. Identifications are from Janice Clapper and Betty Condon.
|There are some
questions regarding the identifications of these next 5
photos too. The woman in all the photos other than
Miltons is identified as Alex Liston, however, the photo
to the left and the one immediately below are apparently
not the same person.
Alex Liston Fischer, daughter of Alexander Graham Liston, Jr. and granddaughter of Alexander Graham Liston, Sr.
|Sadie Liston?, Alex's
sister. Not positive of identification.
|From left, Agnes
Mitchell Milton, Sadie Liston, Henry Milton. Betty Condon
positively identifies the woman in the middle in this
photo and the woman on the left in the next photo as
Alex's sister, Sadie Liston.
|From left: Sadie Liston, Sig Loden, Lloyd Milton, Sigrin Loden, and Maurice Milton|
|Possibly Alex Liston, on left, and Laura Milton. Alex was a first cousin to Laura's mother (Agnes) but just slightly older than Laura, and she and Laura were good friends. This photo was taken at the Iowa State Teacher's College, Cedar Falls, Iowa. Laura and Alex were both teachers.|
