Does anyone recognize the lady & her daughters in the attached photograph? The back of the picture is labeled, "The Mason Triplets - 1912." I believe this to be Hattie Mason (b. 1894), wife of Gus Mason (b. abt. 1875). On each of the babies' dress is her name; "Callie," "M_ _ _ lie," & "Allie." I found this picture in a photo album in MS, & I believe these people are somehow related to me. Thanks for any help you can give me.

YES! Well, I don't recognize them as babies, but what a small world. I used to go to Church with these ladies in Spartanburg, SC. Callie Mason Allen was married to George Willis Allen. She passed away in February, 2002 at the age of 90. If I remember correctly, there was a newspaper article about her in the local paper. I'll see if I can find it. Mallie Elease Mason, evidently never married, passed away in September, 1987 at the age of 76. I can't find Allie yet. I will have to try to find out what her last name was; it was several years ago and I'm just not certain.

I will go to the library and pull up the obituaries for you and find out all the details I can.

Small world, isn't it?

I will be back in touch.

Hello, My Father, Everett Leon Mason, son of Mathis Mason, had an uncle named Gus. I will have to look and see if Mathis had a brother named Gus, or if this was a cousin.
Who were your Grandparents? Are they from the Carolinas or Virginia? Would love to hear back from you.

Shirley, I sent you an email, but since then, I have looked at my notes concerning these Mason triplets. They were children of James Perry Mason (1871-1936) & Emma Ross (1881-1953). The parents of James Perry Mason were Guilford Mason (1820-1897) & Margaret Smith (1826-1920). The only Gus Mason I've found in my files is a Gus Mason (b. abt. 1862). He was also a descendant of Guilford Mason - a grandson. However, the only Mathis Masons or Edwin Masons, of whom I am aware, were descendants of the John Mason, who appeared on the 1790-1810 census of Spartanburg County. Although I have no proof, at this time, I don't believe that Guilford Mason was one of the descendants of John Mason. I hope this information is of some help to you.
