Orphaned Old Photos-Kellenbarger, Frye, Hogue, Horn (NE & IA)

Kellenbarger, Frye, Hogue, Johnson, Gardner (Ne and IA)-old photos. I "inherited" two very large boxes of old photos from a cousin of my Dad's who had no living direct relatives. I have worked on and off with these for a month now. What a collection, over 500 photos! Labeling what I can and soon sending some on to other people that re...lated on the other side of the family. A sad lot, some great pics but many damaged by moisture, etc. Some are getting thrown out which is a heart breaker but they are damaged and musty and no one to give them too. Scanning all the good ones and even some not so good ones. Sad to see someone's life and family almost come to an end--even in the photo department. I will be the caretaker for years to come with what is left. Will my boys ever care or pass them on? I sure hope so. Surnames: KELLENBARGER, FRYE, JOHNSON, HOGUE, GARDNER, HORN, AND OTHERS. These are all from the central Nebraska area near Broken Bow and some from the Corydon, Iowa area. Many late 1800's pics too. Contact me if you think you are related!
I have included just two photos--names or pics look familiar?
