Mary Morris Thompson and Daughters

Mary Morris Thompson (see last post) and daughters Beulah or Burlah Thompson (born circa 1908) and Mary W. (or Willie?) Thompson (born circa 1912). This photograph was printed on a postcard. It is unknown whether the picture was taken in West Virginia or in Bland County, Virginia (where Mary was from).

My uncle described the relationship Mary and my Grandfather JTW Trubie Mitchell: Trubie’s mother’s first cousin, Mary Morris, was a daughter of Octavia G. Miller & Samuel Morris. Octavia G. Miller was a daughter of Abram Woodson Miller and Rachel Hearn, and a sister to Jasper Wain Miller, who was the father of Minnie Flora Belle Miller Mitchell, Trubie’s mother.
