The History Center of Traverse City

---- — Several readers identified the five-generation family pictured in the Jan. 23 Community section's History Center of Traverse City archive photo.

Jack Delancey said his grandfather, LeRoy "Lee" Delancey is the man in the photo.

He said the woman sitting in the chair is Maggie Newmarch Milks.

The baby on her lap is Laura Fasel. The baby's mother, Anita (Delancey) Fasel, daughter of Lee Delancey, is standing on the right.

Cora Delancey, mother of Lee Delancey, is pictured on the left.

Sharon (Newmarch) Case and Dorthy (Delancey) Belvitch also identified their relatives in the five-generation photo. Case said Margaret (Halstead) Newmarch Milks was her father's grandmother. Belvitch thought the photo might have been taken at her grandfather Lee Delancey's farm in Kingsley.
