Photos of Peter and Rose

Other Family Members

Only three photos have been found that include Peter or Rose.  One is a portrait-like portion of a photo that included an unidentified friend or neighbor.  The second is a photo of Peter on the Lamont farm with his team of horses and some small children, which was taken around 1920.  The boy on the horse has been identified as son Anthony.  The others have not been identified.  The third is the formal photograph taken to commemorate the wedding of daughter Mary and Adam Piersa, a neighbor.  Rose is behind the flower girl.  Mary Weritz is to the right of the flower girl.  Son Peter is behind Rose.  Anton Weritz is the fourth person from the left side of the back row (with mustache).  Peter was probably outside smoking a cigar, which was a passion of his.

Below are links to a couple photos of Peter Chubon that were recently acquired (April 2008).  They were provided by Betty Trulik-Rossman, a Lamont neighbor and family friend.  The Trulik family came from Slovakia at around the time Peter and Rose immigrated and ended up on a small farm, which was across the road from the Chubon farm and adjacent to the Weritz farm. Betty and her mother were with Peter when he died.

The 1941 photo is a real gem, showing a side of Peter that had been mentioned before.  Betty said she knew him as "an always happy, fun loving guy," which the photo seems to confirm.  Betty recalled that it was a posed picture taken with Peter's encouragement and direction.  The photo was taken when he was visiting Mr. Trulik, and they had a couple shots of whiskey, which was customary. Earlier Mrs. Trulik found some kind of club, and brought it out to show them.  Peter got this idea to take a photo of them pretending to be drunks, with Mrs. Trulik standing over them with the club and berating them for drinking. As you can see, he reserved the bottle for himself.

The 1940 photo was also taken when he was visiting the Truliks. The woman in the light dress is Mrs.Trulik, and the other was a family friend.

This is the oldest known photo that includes Chubon family members.  It is thought that the tallest child in the back row (left side) is Anthony.  The others in the back row going from the left to right are John Weritz, John Chubon, and Paul Weritz.  The identifications were made by Joe Chubon, who is wearing the white coat in the photo.  The photo was taken beside the Lamont farmhouse and probably dates to around 1924.  It was preserved by Anthony.

 Additional postings for this page will be appreciated.  There is plenty of room on the server for additional photographs.  The goal is to post photos of as many of the descendants and ancestors of Peter and Rose as possible.  If you have information about these photos or other photos that you want to share, please contact me at .
