Picture Perfect Saturday #12 ~ Jemina Dill Divine and Elizabeth Avens Divine

Picture Perfect logoI 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 this photo of my maternal 4 times great-grandmother. Jemima (Dill) Divine (1755-1848) and her daughter-in-law Elizabeth (Avens) Divine (1797-1877). It was taken in January 1848, 10 months before Jemima passed away.

They look like they are dressed in their best attire. Elizabeth has her hand resting on Jemima’s shoulder in a caring way. It was taken in Monroe County, Tennessee. I don’t mind the condition of the photo, I think it adds character to the ladies.
