Ort and Beatty Family Photos

Great Aunt Neva (Scoviac) sent this note to Grandpa Arthur Hoover just after Grandma Vivian Hoover died in 1980:

Dear Art,
Here are the pictures for Davey. Vivian wanted some I just got them a few weeks ago. I wanted so badly to get one to Vivian but couldn't do it. David is into the ancestry thing so I'm sure he will appreciate them.

I've included the notes Aunt Neva wrote on the back of each of the pictures (with some clarifications).

[Aunt Neva informed me later that Hans Oord came from the Palatinate, confirmed by cousin Carolyn (Ort) DeVoe this past Sabbath (our Ort Family Reunion at Scott and Jeanie Ort's home in Michigan), which is the Alsace Lorain area, and immigrated from French Alsace in 1740].
