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...
This is a Sepia Saturday post. Head over there to see other cool photos.

i'm having one of those low brain days where pointing and clicking is fun and mindless, so I took a peek around online in case i could find anything helpful. at the calif birth index, an elizabeth frances bliss was born in alameda county on 8 may 1926, mother's maiden name thorp. there's a calif death record for virginia bliss born 1 dec 1902 in arkansas, died 12 Sep 1974 in sonoma.

looking at 1920, there's a viola v thorp in big bottom, independence, arkansas, daughter of green e and mary e thorp. siblings are brother virgil 16 and sister ruby 14.

i'm about certain this is the same family in 1910, very badly transcribed. (same location, same 3 youngest children).

I hope Virgie and her baby are reunited with their family :-) She looks like a very happy Mum :-) Jo
