Looking for family

Hi, I came across this picture and wondered if you know any family history? I'm researching mine and Soper is my maiden name. Contact me at fishfamily5@yahoo.com if you'd like to connect.

Grandmother Soper

This is my grandmother Charity O. Spencer Soper. She was just shy of 36 years old in this picture, and had 10 children. My mother, Donna, was her 12th and last child.

The Kid

Interesting how the little kid mirrors her posture.

The Lady

Did Philip Seymour Hoffman channel this woman while doing Scotty in Boogie Nights?
