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...

i wonder if they knew each other in arkansas; was any of your family in big bottom or pulaski? Perhaps one of virgie's siblings/cousins/etc married into a line related to you, or maybe she and ruth attended the same school or church at some point and were friends?

it would have been nice if aunt ruth mentioned it with the pics! *g* i do love virgie's stroller <3
