I’ve gathered a collection of my loose family photos and have begun scanning them. I had thought everyone was scanned until I opened one folder. This one says Mrs. MM Hunt…. Margaret Millicent Hunt Hyde, perhaps taken during the civil war era…1861 through 1865.
This image of Mrs. Hyde is dated 1870. The gentle smile of the first image is gone, and a stern face now stares to the side of the camera. I wish I knew more about her.
This last image is approximately 1909. A handful of other photographs were taken that day. How I wish they had been dated. Maybe my cousin Tom, who reads my blog almost every day, knows more about Mrs. MM Hunt. This Margaret Millicent was my Grandfather’s grandmother. My mother was named after her, as was his sister, myself, and one of my children plus two of my grandchildren.
Perhaps there should be a site for Margaret Millicent’s.
