Week 2 of [52 Ancestors]: Favorite photo.

The photo above of "Elizabeth and Olive Watkins" is one of my favorites. Elizabeth, standing, is my Grandmother Elizabeth, who I knew well. She was born within 20 years of the War Between the States, which she referred to as "the Late Unpleasantness".

My parents were in their 30s when I was born, and my mother was born the year my Grandmother turned 28, at their home on the grounds of Vicksburg National Military Park. It was always a bit of a jolt to see Grandmother's birth year: 1896.

I joined WikiTree a month after my mother died, and posted "Thoughts from Liz not long after, contemplating the changes Grandmother Elizabeth had seen in her life.

I miss them both.
