I wanted to share this family photo of James Malady /Malody/Melody with the community. Location: Valley Junction, Iowa. Date: Dec 1893.

The details show a WikiTree type of collaboration between distant family members: narrowing the possibilities for who appears in the photo and having the conjecture confirmed by family members with first-hand memories of Lettie's face. And everyone sharing what they know.

And did you zoom in on the rock that she is displaying so casually?
Very beautiful! Thanks for sharing.

James is sitting on a lovely couch.  I love the way they are posing in the picture. They almost look like mannequins. She is staring off into one direction and he is staring off into another one.

I love their clothes and the pin she is wearing. Thank you for sharing this fabulous picture.
