A genealogy blog focused on families settling in East Tennessee and the Northern Neck of Virginia with explorations of Rusyn roots.
This is a wonderful photograph. Don't you love little Judson's casual lean toward his father, arma in arm, with his leg crossed over the other? Rachel has a beautiful hat on her lap. Do you know if the photo was taken for a reason, such as an anniversary or birthday? It's very lovely.
I'm so glad you liked it, Nancy. I'm so close that I don't see it with any detachment. It IS lovely. Thank you! As for the reason, I don't really know, but Flora was married in March, 1888. I always believed this was a "last" McAdams family portrait before she left home.
