Indian Heritage

Perhaps Rodman Wanamaker talked to this family about their heritage. They all got together to take this picture, knowing that it was an American Indian Exposition.

"Widder" is a slang for Widow. Mrs Vaught got her family together and it looks like her Sons and Grandkids came over for the shoot.

Cherokee, for sure.....and a lot of other tribes inhabited this region.

There has to be a reason this picture was taken for posterity.
