I don't know about you but I love old pictures. This picture is of my Great Grandmother Jessie (top left) and her four daughters.
This shot really seems to show the girls personalities and their affection for each other. When these girls were very young their Father walked out on them. Jessie and the girls lived in a very small town without any opportunities for a single Mom, so she turned part of their house into a store.
The girls in order, are Florence Ester(1895), Cecelia Mae (1898), my grandma, Hazel Henrietta (1900) and Irene Elizabeth (1899). I also love the old names, so many of them are becoming popular again.
My Great Grandmother met a wonderful man when her girls were still young. Levy married Jessie and took on her girls, as his own. They were fortunate enough to have a son, Lewis in 1914. They were happily married many years and both lived beyond their 80's.
My Grandmother always told us how lucky they were as a family to find a good man that would marry a divorcee and raise her children as his own.
