I am currently working on my Family Genealogy Group page for Facebook. In doing so I realized I have a tremendous amount of photos. I decided to feature one a week. No, not everyone is “perfect” however, they are to me!
This week I am showcasing my paternal 2nd cousin 1 time removed, Bessie Mae Twigg (1888-1909). She is the daughter of John William Twig and Sarah Jane Ogan. This photo is from about 1892 when Bessie was 4 years old. This was taken at The August Rino Studio in St. Louis, Missouri. I love her long luxurious hair, her beautiful dress, her stance…..okay, I love everything about it! Although Bessie only lived to be 21 years old, she had gotten married and had one son.
