Based on a letter from Aug. 30, 1911 my great grandmother didn't know she even had a sister until she received a letter from ``Aunt Mary Brittenham''. This photo was taken between the date she learned of her sister in 1911 and her death in 1916. The letter indicates that she thought her entire life that her parents were dead. We only know that her mother was still living, but are having difficulty tracking down her birth parents. She was so excited to learn of her ``family''. We don't know if she ever met her mother before her untimely death.
I wanted to share this family photo of Lillian Manlove with the community. Location: unknown. Date: unknown.
