She's very pretty Connie. Look at that tiny little collar!Hope you have a nice weekend.
My goodness, I had a former student that could have posed for this photo. The eyes, nose, and expression are exactly the same.
I love this series you are doing........don't ever stop.
A name like Myrtle is uncommon today but was a popular 19th century name, much like Henrietta, Agnes, etc. I wonder if Ms Van Zant could be found on Ancestry...? I'm on vacation so no time to look now dang it.
I am just back from a long crazy weekend out of town, so need to do some catching up. I did a preliminary search, with not much success, but will return to it later, and see if I can connect what I have found to this photo.
This is a tricky one since Van Zant has a number of spelling variations.I'm guessing she is about 20-ish from the picture and that she was born around 1890-ish.Using the SSN death records, the strongest possibility seems to be:VANZANT, MYRTLE 16-Mar-1893 Oct-1975 age 82 30315 (Atlanta, Fulton, GA) SSN issued Tennessee.So it seems the SSN Myrtle is from TN. Which ties into the one mentioned in this obituary for her son.http://www.chattanoogan.com/articles/article_41862.aspPossibly Walter "Woody" Van Zant's son, Gary Van Zant; grandson, David Van Zant; sister, Aline Macklin are relatives?
Anything is possible Iggy..with women you never know if it is their married name or not..It really makes it confusing:(
