Frankie Perkins 2 years old Sep 22, 1892   Baxter Springs Kans

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Do you think the date on the back of that photo is for his birthday? Or for the date the photo was taken?

    I can't find any Frank Perkins entries for that particular birthday, but I did find one in Baxter Springs who was born in March, 1890. On his memorial number "27465793" it mentions he ran a filling station in Baxter Springs. He apparently had a son and two granddaughters when he passed away in 1950.

    Adorable photo, by the way. You sure have found a run of cute ones lately.

    1. I am not certain, but I think it means he was two years old in 1892.
