Anyone researching Funston ?

My Great-Aunt Ollie Britt married Joseph "Joe" John Funston Jr. They had no children (except perhaps a child who died in infancy). In my late Grandmother's (Ollie's sister's) photos is a box of Ollie's photos. They are comprised of shots of Ollie and Joe, as well as other folks that I don't know and who don't seem to be part of the Britt family. They're too well dressed for one thing!

I've been trying to find anyone who might also be researching this family, thinking they might want to see the photos. Here's what I know about Joe:
  • born: 24 July 1917, Pennsylvania 1
  • died: 3 Mar 1958, Dodge County, Georgia 1
  • buried: Marietta National Cemetery, Marietta, Cobb, Georgia 2
  • wife: Ollie Britt 1, 2
  • father: Joseph John Funston, Sr., born est. 1889, PA 3, 4
  • mother: Catherine T. Unknown, born est. 1897, PA 3, 4
  • siblings: Winifred Helen, George E., Claire E., Francis 2, 3, 4
Here are some photos of a larger collection. If anyone is interested, I've returned the photos to my Aunt, but can get them back again.
