John Rist

  Submitted by Peggy (Rist) Ray

Note from Owner of photo: My mother, Myrtle (Neff) Rist, had this photo with our RIST family photos.  It is a postcard and the only thing written on the back was "Man standing JOHN RIST"Can anyone identify the other persons in the photo?


John Rist was my grandfather.  He was born 26 Feb 1889 in Paderborn, St. Clair Co., IL and died 19 Sep 1958 in Hecker, Monroe Co., IL.  He married Edna Pearl Gregson 6 Nov 1917 in Red Bud, Randolph Co., IL.  I am not sure when the photo was taken but he looks younger in this photo than what he did in his marriage photo (so I am assuming it was taken before 1917).


If you can identify anyone in this photo please contact Peggy or Sharon.
