Mystery: A young girl


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.

Clowning Around


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!
