03-Karns at Simon's home about 1908
Click to see next picture

Simon was a son of John Heft and Rachel (Hixson) Karns, and brother of Alva. This photo of extended Karns-related families probably was taken about 1908, judging from the ages of some of the children. A copy of the photo from which this image was made appeared in the Bedford Gazette on 15 June 1984. There must have been some special occasions that year, because a comparable family photo of the family of George Shaffer Mearkle, Simon's father-in-law, taken in 1891, had appeared in the same newspaper in May of 1984.
