I always find it interesting when they put cause of death as senility.  In 2018, we think of senility as a mental decline, but in 1922 it included the physical weakening of the body due to age.

Caroline’s Travels

I doubt they walked the entire way but I can’t imagine riding in a wagon was much quicker than walking.

Grandma’s Photo Album #3

Here’s the next picture in the photo album.  This one has no identifying marks on front or back.

The photo album belonged to my great-grandmother Lottie Smith Fetherkile.  We found it while cleaning out my great-grandfather’s house after his death.  Grandma Lottie died in 1926 so we know all were taken before this date.  I figure if I put them out there, maybe someone will recognize a relative and let me know who it is.

Anyone have a guess as to approximate date???

I know that Vinton is a town west of Urbana – most likely the nearest photographer at the time.
