I wanted to share this family photo of George Petrie with the community. Location: unknown. Date: c. 1897 (She died 7 Nov. 1898 at age 4 yrs. 31/2 months, I'm estimating that she was 3 in the photo).  Her father served in the Spanish American War.

Thanks for sharing this photo of adorable little Marie and her doting Daddy.  What a cute picture!  I was so sad to read that she died at such a young age.  Based on her age, can you estimate the date of the photo and add it to the photo page?  And be sure to create a profile page for Daddy's little girl.  It may not have a lot of information, but you can add her cause of death and link her photo.  I'm sure that George wants her to be remembered.

I really liked your comment.  To me, it's such a happy sad photo.  Her father never really recovered from her death and he was a really nice man.  His wife was a super nice lady and she died in 1955 when I was 11, but I still remember her gifts.  She always sent a small gift at Christmas George Petrie was my great grandmother's brother.
