Would like to send May back to family. Her portrait is from the photo albums of Edward Milton Peters, who lived in Rushville, Missouri, for many years and spent the remainder of his life in St. Joseph. He died in 1941. Photographer J.W.Souder, St Joseph.

Key to the Past

Funny thing happened this weekend. Me and my father took our fireplace mantel down to fix it (The House is in Rushville Mo) and we found Edward Milton Peters written on the back of it. So in 1913 he worked on my house in Rushville. I thought that was interesting.

Oh, that hair.

Several of my students and family members have donated hair to Locks of Love to make wigs for cancer patients. This young lady could probably make TWO wigs with one haircut!

And those eyes...so expressive!

It is the pose of a daring girl, in 1890s.
