This is day 12 of the A to Z April Challenge.
is for Laura. Laura Jollett Sullivan was one of my great-grandmother’s sisters. She was born May 30, 1865 in Greene County, Virginia and died July 30, 1947. She married William J. Sullivan in January 1886. They moved to Shenandoah, Virginia, where they ran a store, and Will served on the town council. They had 5 daughters.

Whew! They had some names! Not the prettiest names on the block, but they were probably the nicest people on the block. As older women, they were just the sweetest ladies you’d ever want to meet.
|Sadly, I can't remember who is who. But the 2nd from the left|
is my grandmother Lucille Rucker Davis. The woman
on the far right is Elta Sullivan Farrar.
Judging by her smile in so many photos that have been passed down in the family, I’m sure Laura must have been sweet too.
