Just making it under the wire I give you my contribution to this weeks Sepia Saturday. Trying to clean the house and prepare food for our annual BBQ had me wondering if I'd find time to get here. So now before my guests arrive...
Taking a leap with Alan's theme I give you two children from a well-to-do family. These photos were purchased at an estate sale many years ago. I do not know what became of the little boy, but the woman married a Naval officer. She had two children, a son and daughter. I do not know what became of the daughter, but the son was killed in an experimental plane crash. I do not know if she was alive when this happened. I have a few photos of her with her son and her as a bride. She was a beautiful child who grew into a beautiful woman.
This first image was taken in Davenport, Iowa by Hostetler. I have no information about the second photographer. Both are very large prints.

If you'll be attending the Federation of Genealogical Societies conference this coming week in Springfield, Illinois drop by booth 809 and say "Hi" to my friend Lorel Kapke, creator of genealogy software Sort Your Story.
