(Please visit Suzanne at Colorado Lady for info on Vintage Thingie Thursdays!)
WHEW! Sorry! I am forever at the tail end of Vintage Thingie Thursday! And I must apologize again, it will probably be tomorrow before I can visit everyone.
Here's my favorite family photo from my father's side of my family. The young girl in the very center of the photo is my dad's mother, my grandmother. Oh gosh, I was thinking she was one of nine children but I just counted them all and she was one of ten. Wow! Didn't know that. I met one or two of her sisters when I was very young but that's all and I don't recall her ever talking about any of the others to me.
My father told me the following two are her graduation photos from "Finishing School". I'm guessing these are circa something like 1890? I do know that she received her credential/certificate/papers (???) to be a teacher - I found a note on a piece of paper with her grades and stating that she was qualified to now become a teacher.
