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 3rd cousin, Dora Agnes Rhoads. She was born on November 02, 1899 in Covelo, Mendocino County, California, the oldest of 4 children born to William Denham Rhoads (1870-1961) and Agnes Hurt (1878-1955).
The look on her face gives the impression that she knows the photographer and that she does this all the time. She gives the idea that she may have been born to be a model as she looks very comfortable here. I wonder if this was taken for a special occasion. Her dress is unwrinkled, and she is wearing high-top shoes and gloves. She has the type of cheeks that you would like to pinch, nicely of course. She would have been a beautiful woman if she had not died at the age of 6 years-old, on March 17, 1906.
I am a professional genealogist, writer, photographer, wife, mother, and grandma. I have written two books “Your Family History: Doing It Right the First Time” and “Planning Your Genealogy Research Trip”, both available on Amazon.
