This photograph is printed on metal/tin. It was among family photographs belonging to Gertrude Ester Rentz Jordan
when she passed away. She was called "Gertie" by her family and friends.
Gertie was born April 19, 1878 in Miller County, GA and died July 18, 1963 in Early County, Ga.
She married John Wright Jordan January 31, 1894 in Baker County, GA.
John W. Jordan was born April 13, 1873 in Baker County, GA and died September 16, 1943 in Early Co., GA.
John was the son of William H. "Bill" Jordan and Jane Rooks Jordan of Baker County, GA.
I believe the picture is possibly of Gertie's parents and her youngest sister: William James Rentz,
Elizabeth Sarah Jane Sheffield Rentz, and Trudy Holly Rentz.
William James Rentz was called "Tiner" by his family and friends. W.J. Rentz was born November 23, 1844 in Baker
County, GA and died May 10, 1910 in Miller County, GA. He was the son of Joshua Rentz and Anna/Annie Hires.
W.J. Rentz married Elizabeth Sarah Jane Sheffield December 10, 1868 in Miller County, GA.
Elizabeth Sarah Jane Rentz was called Jane by her family and friends. She was born January 24, 1846 in
Early County, GA and died December 27, 1922 in Pelham, Mitchell County, GA. She was the daughter of
Isham R. Sheffield and Martha R. Lane.
Trudy Holly Rentz was born December 24, 1888 and died September 28, 1908. She married Sam L. Davis
December 21, 1907 in Baker County, GA. Trudy is the youngest child of W.J. "Tiner" Rentz and Elizabeth
Sarah "Jane" Sheffield.
I believe this photograph is of W.J. "Tiner", Jane and Trudy Rentz because the lady in the picture looks
much like a picture that is known to be Elizabeth Sarah Jane Sheffield.
I cannot prove this is who they are and hope that someone can help identify them. They are related/connected
to the Rentz, Sheffield, Jordan and Tiner families.
