Need help colorizing

As a favor, I agreed to take a shot at colorizing and restoring some old family photos for a former work colleague and mentor of mine. He is in his late 70s and is now the "senior" family representative. He and his children are putting together a virtual family reunion, and he wanted to put together a slideshow tracing the history of the family.
I had colorized and restored a few photos before, using the Photoshop beta filter, that turned out fairly well with a bit of additional tweaking. So I thought how hard it could be to take on this project. I was wrong. The Photoshop beta filter yielded very poor results, and now I'm stuck trying other methods – with equally poor results.
So I am here to request some assistance from anyone who has some time and would like to give it a shot. Here are the photos:

Thanks!

Randy
