More new (to me) Burris family photos

These are courtesy of a newly discovered cousin who found the blog.

Treasure Chest Thursday: Lina Hill Holmes

This is another of my recent eBay purchases.

Back of the photo was labeled.

And ding! ding! ding!

I think we have a winner.

According to several Ancestry family trees, this was probably a young Lina Blanche Hill, daughter of William F Hill and Mildred Collins.

According to those trees, Lina was born on 24 Jan 1891 in Westford, Crawford Co., PA, and died 31 Jan 1979 in Holidaysburg, Lycoming Co., PA. She married John B Holmes on 27 Nov 1912 in Crawford Co., PA.

So I'm off to see if someone would like to add this photo back into their treasure chest...
