Sepia Saturday: Virgie Bliss and baby...

From Aunt Ruth's scrapbook...

Ruth and her family took a trip to Oakland, CA in 1926.

I don't know if they knew Virginia Bliss or not, but Ruth snapped a photo of Virginia and her baby anyway.

Photobucket
Caption reads, "Virgie Bliss and baby."

From a quick check of the 1930 census, I found Virginia Bliss (born about 1903), wife of James Bliss, living with her husband, 3 1/2 year old daughter, Frances E., and 24 year old brother-in-law, Adam, in Oakland, Alameda Co., CA.

I'll haunt the Ancestry trees to see if I can find descendants to offer them a scan.

Probably will upload to Dead Fred if I can determine if no one in the photo is still living.

If you are related, just right click and save...
