I wanted to share this family photo of Josie Bales with the community.
Location: Rogers, Texas, USA. Date: Fall 1914
Josie was the fifth child of James "Jim" Lazarus Bales and Martha Susan "Susie" Tippit Bales, born North of Davilla, Texas in 1913. At the age of one and a half years, she developed dysentery and died. She is buried in the McCann Cemetery in Rogers, Texas. In an almost prescient decision, her parents had this portrait made shortly before she fell ill. There are no baby portraits of their other ten children.
