Disclaimer: Because this is a fairly common name, we have no proof that the Charles F. Adams in the photo is the same Charles F. Adams we've researched below.
A search of the 1900 census for Muskegon, Michigan turns up only one Charles "Charly" Francis Adams. According to his WWI draft registration he was born 24 August 1886 North Muskegon, Michigan. He died Aug 1965 in Allegan, Allegan, Michigan
Anna Adams b. Dec 1852 in NY is divorced and working as a dressmaker in 1900. Is it possible that she is the Ann Adams noted on the back of the Winnifred Clift photo? (These photos were found in the same box so may have come from the same family album.)
William R. Adams b. abt 1878 New York
Anna C. Adams b. 1884 Michigan
Also see the photo of Carl Hammond who also may have been from Muskegon.
