Wordless Wednesday is a daily prompt at Geneabloggers that asks family historians to create a post in which the main focus is a photograph or image.
This photo was in a box of pictures belonging to my great-aunt Helen Killeen Parker. I don’t know who the boy is, but it isn’t likely someone in my direct line. The photographer was located in Norfolk, Virginia, but the Killeens were New Yorkers until 1905 when the newly widowed Mary Theresa Sheehan Killeen moved to Portsmouth, Virginia to be closer to her in-laws. Helen’s only brother Matthew would have been 10 in 1905, but this boy looks younger than that. He could be Helen’s husband Herbert Parker.
