Last weekend I visited my two great aunts, EVA and HILDA WATERS. Hilda is age 87 and her sister, Eva will turn 99 this year. They gave me this photo which I hadn’t seen before, and which I will treasure.
On the left is their brother BERNARD WATERS, sitting next to him is his sister, my grandmother LEOLA WATERS, then brother VERNON ALEXANDER WATERS. On the end is their sister BLANCHE WATERS, nursing
baby, EVA . Hilda is not in the photo, as it was taken before her birth. It’s probable that the photo was taken in Rochester, maybe on the family farm. By the way the children are dressed, I would guess it was a special occasion.
The children in this family were born over a period of 22 years. Eva was born in 1913, so my guess is that the photo was taken about 1914.
At the moment, I am having fun researching and writing about the stories of the lives of these children
