An old photo from about 1909 in Gaslyn

On the 26th of July I posted an old photo from about 1910 depicting the G. L. Miller clan. There was some question about the woman sitting next to G.L. and whether or not it was Sylvia Melissa Jones Miller. I have this other photo from a little bit earlier - perhaps a year judging from the age of the two boys - Bob and Charles. The new photo, call it the 1909 photo, has Grossfather (in the long beard) and distinctly labeled on the back of the photo - in the lower left corner - is Sylvia Melissa. The bald guy in the front is G.L.'s brother, Charles, next to his wife (Mrs. Charles? - that would be Nora??). The rough hewn guy next to Sylvia is her hubby, G.E. Miller. The young women are the McDill girls, except for Aunt Mayme in the upper right corner. G.L. and Nancy Jane are in the center.


There is no dog in this photo.

So what's your opinion? I think Grandma Miller looks pretty tired in that one, like she'd been caring for a cranky baby for the past six months or so.

But see, that's totally what I mean about the lady in the last photo looking to me like Grandma Miller.

Retired Professor said...

Yep, I agree. I believe it is the same person in both photos.

I'm not sure, but there is no one left to ask, so I guess we'll have to be happy with guessing. I just think that the woman next to G.L. in the first photo is too tall to be Grandma Miller.

The other thing is that I'm guessing about the year of the photo. It could have been 1908 as likely as 1909. Charles was born December 16, 1906. How old is he in the photo? Bob was born September 30, 1904.

Grandma Miller wasn't a tall woman when I knew her, for sure. She also had severe dowagers hump, a form of osteoporosis of the spine that probably caused her to lose several inches of height.

I'm not good at estimating ages of children any more.

Gino said...

In the Gaslyn photo she is slumped way over to the side, head in hand, elbow on knee and still appears to be taller than her husband. Possibly she was tall?

Quite likely taken the same day as the four Georges photo. The clothes look the same except GE has put his coat on for the Georges.

Thanks goodness I tried The adidas adiZero Rose Dominate . we get the goods from the factory directly ,so the price is very cheap , and We only sell authentic shoes. No variants and no fakes. This kind of adiRose 2 , is people's best choice because of it's elegant and durable,classic and healthy.The adidas adiZero Rose Dominate is D-Rose's sig for the second half of next season, their design appearing to be a slimmed-down take on the adiRose 2 , particularly with regard to the upper eyelets. With the same sole as the Crazy Light , use of laser printing and SprintFrame can also be seen on this shoe. Unlike the Rose 2.0, the Dominate lacks the support straps, but the two will have SPRINTWEB and SPRINTFRAME. If you look at the sole, their is a miCoach logo, a nice addition to the line.
