I love this girl’s direct gaze, the wispy hair, the lace, and little button on her collar.
Someone told a family member that they thought this could be a picture of Melissa Haley Dixon from the Dry Fork area of Pittsylvania County, but we are unsure. (We don’t know of a family connection.)
If anyone can identify this young miss, please leave a comment.
From the Jones/Yeatts/Beaver family photographs, but I have no idea of why we have it. I don’t know of any professional clowns in our family tree . . . .
Best guess is that the photo could be from the 1920s or 1930s. At least everybody looks pretty happy in the picture!
We believe this is a relative of the Jones or Yeatts family of Virginia. (It is also possible that she was a Beaver family relative, perhaps from North Carolina, but the Jones/Yeatts connection seems more likely.)
If anyone knows who she is, please leave a comment or email me.
