This lady is my third great-grandmother, Susan William Lee Martin Kennedy. She was the wife of Dr Nathan Blunt Kennedy, one of my Civil War surgeon ancestors.

The lady of the right is my great-grandmother, Mary Tennessee Turner. This photo is from about 1910. Mary is here with a couple of close cousins. Girls Night Out!


Another photo of Mary Tennessee Turner, here as a Woman of Mystery!

“Bubba” Rogers was a railroad man all of his life, so he certainly knew the value of a good straw hat!
