Albert Phillips Trewin (1871-1948) with wife and children, circa 1906

I just spotted this circa-1906 image in an old album that belonged to my grandmother Zillah Trewin. I believe it’s the only photo we have of her step-brother Albert Phillips Trewin and his first wife Georgie Duke, who died of influenza in 1917. I only recognized them because a while back a descendant of Bert’s generously sent me some digital images of that side of the family.

In this photo, Bert and Georgie are pictured with their two sons: Elmer Archer Trewin (b. 1902) and Albert Gray Trewin (b. 1905). Daughter Edith May was born in 1910.

My mother, now 93, remembers meeting Bert and his second wife Jessie Mallette Smith several times. She remembers when Bert & Jessie were visiting Elizabeth, NJ, from their home in Pittsburgh in 1934, and how she and her parents climbed in Bert & Jessie’s car to drive down to Asbury Park to see the Morro Castle shipwreck. Mom would have been 11 at the time. She recalls how old Bert looked, but when you’re 11, everyone looks old!

Anyway, I am glad I came across this image. The album is otherwise largely filled with people who are not labeled, so I have no idea who most of them are,and neither does my mother! 😦

  1. Hey, do you mind if I copy-image this photo for my genealogy?
    What wonderful discoveries you’re making. I’m so excited for you. I have a pile of photo albums and scrapbooks waiting for me for that *someday* when I have the time to go through them. You’re making me anxious for that day!

    • I can email you an un-watermarked copy for your files, Marty. I feel a sense of urgency to organize all this material, but I often feel like I am chasing my tail. Still, I do feel like I am making some progress. Keep calm and carry on, I guess!

    • Go through them sooner rather than later especially if there are any elderly relatives who may be able to help with the identification.

  3. Ahhhh! I’ve never seen that one! What a great picture to see my Grandmother alive and well. Wonder if she was pregnant with Mom? Mom was born in April of 1910. May I have this one and the one of Aunt Zillah on her graduation? I could see the resemblance to Mom. And did you get that photo of “Bert”and Al or Elmer in the model T that I sent you? Do you think they might be more Trewins in that scrapbook? Connie

    • Hi, Connie; Glad you enjoyed the photo. This was circa 1906 so she definitely was not pregnant with your mom at the time. I can send those 2 images to you, but first please confirm your email address since a few emails I sent you in the last year were not responded to. No, I never got the Model-T one. As for whether there are more Trewins in the album, I don’t think so, but I will scrutinize it again (and again, and again!). 🙂

  4. I like the look on the face of the baby on the right. He looks amused by his brother. –Curt

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
