Inspired by Jacqi Stevens at A Family Tapestry who was inspired by Far Side of Fifty at Forgotten Old Photos, I plan to devote several Wordless Wednesdays to some of my photos of unidentified people. Several “new” cousins have found my blog; maybe more are out there with that same picture in their possession.
I will start with some babies because seeing orphan photos of babies in thrift shops and antique stores always makes me sad. While my photos are not really “orphans” since no one in my family threw them out and I do still have them, they might as well be “orphans” because I have absolutely no idea who the people were or who they became. I’m guessing the pictures are from relatives who shared their new joy with either my great-grandmother Mary Frances Jollett Davis OR Sudie Rucker. But it is also possible the photos are from the “out-laws” – you know them, the people who married into the family lines you are interested in but whose genealogy has so far failed to engage your time and energy.
This first one is such a charmer with those ears and that quizzical expression. Boy? Girl? Year?
Maybe someone will stumble upon the photo and provide some words to complete the picture so it will be wordless no more.
