Photo Number 1550

This is a CdV from Craig’s Collection.
Sarah Eleanor  CP

Fort Scott was in Kansas.
Sarah Eleanor back  CP
Sarah Eleanor Ievry  Cory
Age 3 years
This little gal looks so sad…but she made me smile and I hope she makes you smile too!
Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again.
Happy Easter!
Update from MJ:
The surname might be Cory instead of Ievry. On the 1900 and 1910 census in Fort Scott Ward 4, Bourbon, Kansas there is a Sarah E Cory. Parents are Charles E and Ruth E Cory. Siblings are Catherine (Kate), George, and Ruth.
Update from Iggy:
Sarah E. Cory (16 Dec 1885 - 15 Apr 1977) was the daughter of Charles Estabrook Cory and Ruth Emaline Kellogg (Didn't we have a Kellogg photo not too long ago?)

She married Harry Ernest Menezes and they lived in Dallas, Texas. They appear to have been childless. She was a lawyer and an assistant US Attorney. He was a public school teacher.

There is an interesting write up about her here, notably "The latter received national notice when she administered the Oath of Office to Lyndon Johnson following the assassination of president John Kennedy in Dallas."

  2. I think M J is right, I couldn't find anything with Levry, Ievry, Ivory... you name it - but if you look at the E in her middle name, you see the letter finishes off rather "high" and what looks like an "little e" starts the rest "Eeleanor" - I think Cory produces the same "artifact."

  3. I was just thinking the same thing as what M J commented, and Iggy followed up on the same wave length! I also took my cue from the extra loop in the middle name, so I totally agree.

    What a pathetic yet adorable facial expression on that little one. If she did turn out to be who Iggy thinks (that was an impressive memorial in the link provided), even though she was childless, I imagine there would be someone out there interested in obtaining this childhood photograph of her!

  4. What an interesting find. It appears Iggy is right, and after looking her up, I found a photo of her as an adult, and you could see a resemblance to this child's picture. I think in the article about swearing in Lyndon Johnson, the latter is referring to her friend and contemporary Judge Sarah Hughes. Either way, she had some interesting info out there. She was also in charge of prosecuting bootleggers in Texas according to a 1926 article I found. She is a fascinating person to google. :-)
