  1. There are a "bunch" of Jessie's living in southern Indiana at the time of this picture was taken. I suppose Jessie is related to Ester/Eliza in someway.

    The only thing I can think "MILS" could stand for in this context would be "Mother In Law's Son" which really doesn't make a whole lot of sense (wouldn't brother-in-law be easier?)

  2. When I first saw the word I immediately thought that it was "Wife". I wonder if notched edges can be used to date cards in the UK as well.

  3. It's "Miss" - the first "s" is usually written like an "f" when there's a double, at least in Scotland :-) Jo

  4. It is Miss. As imagespast posted above, the first s is written as an f. That's fairly common in old documents.

  5. It's not actually "written like an f", it's a long "s". Fs are different, really. "Miss" - no controversy. Here it is, from my Mac's character palette: ſ. The italicized or "cursive" [handwritten] version has a tail. There is no crossbar.

  6. If anything, it's curious it doesn't say "Jeſsie" or "Jeßie"...

  7. Thanks for the input Jo, Molly M and Catanea!

    Alan, I am not sure if they notched photos in the UK..have you seen some? :)

  8. So Jessie Glenn isn't a dude.. she's a dudette.

    :) I can never tell with these babies wearing dresses and this one has a "unisex" name, both first and middles!

  9. @ Alan, yes because it was the production process as well as trends that determine what was available during certain time frames.

  10. Beautiful baby.
    I'm scanning family photos for my daughter to feed her new found hunger for family history.

    Do you know if scanning can damage a photo?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Maybelline, All forms of light can damage photos over time. I have noticed it in color photos..especially those that were not kept in albums. In my opinion scanning is acceptable and the effects will never be noticed over time or the damage would be minimal if there was any. Only my 2 cents worth.:)

  13. Gibson County's biggest town might be Princeton, Indiana, which is about 28 miles north of Evansville.

  14. Poor Jessie Glenn.. She died really young.

    A paraphrased entry from:

    http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=REG&db=sutton-appleton&id=I8239

    22. Stephen Underhill LOCKWOOD was born 10 Jul 1866, and died Aug 1931. He was buried in Walnut Hill Cemetery, Gibson, Indiana. He married Esther GASLIN Jan 1890 in Evansville, Indiana. She was born 1873 in Gibson, Indiana, and died 1930. She was buried in Walnut Hill Cemetery, Gibson, Indiana.

    Children of Stephen Underhill LOCKWOOD and Esther GASLIN are:

    i. Glenn LOCKWOOD was born 1891, and died 1919. She married Edgar WRIGHT.
    ii. Mae I LOCKWOOD was born 1892. She married Manning Z TAYLOR 1915. He was born 1899, and died 1955.
    iii. Ruth Dale LOCKWOOD was born 1897. She married Robert Dewey REED 1917.

  15. There must be an error in that last website's information.

    I found Jessie Glenn still alive in 1920 and she had some children. Her son, Robert Edgar Wright (b. 04 Aug 1916 d. 21 Jul 1997 Princeton, Gibson, IN at the age of 80) is one.

    In Ancestry.com there is not only a family tree with Robert E. Wright of Princeton, Indiana (owned by Reinhart Olds 82510) but there also some pictures AND on Obituary for him.

    I can't see either since I'm not a member - but I can read the thumbnail of the obituary from 1997. He was survived by a daughter and three sons (hopefully one or more are still "with us" 13 years later.
