Almost Wordless Wednesday: Birthday Girls


"All birthday girls"
Lillian Knight, Eunice Holt Sawyer, Flavia Tweed Sawyer and Sara Elizabeth "Aunt Boss" Conway Dawson


This photograph is from a collection belonging to Mary Kathryn Sawyer McKenzie. Eunice was married to Mary Kathryn's first cousin Joe Henry Luther Sawyer, Flavia was her sister-in-law and Aunt Boss was her mother's sister. I don't know what, if any relationship Lillian Knight had to Mary Kathryn beyond friendship. 

Flavia and Eunice were both born on September 1st. The birthdays of Lillian and Aunt Boss are unknown. The picture was probably taken after August, 1947 when Flavia married Conway Sawyer. The location is in Cocke or Greene Counties, TN.
