My maternal great grandparents. Thought I try something a little different for this heritage...not so many blacks and browns! I like the way it turned out. This is for the R U Creative or Clueless challenge. Journaling reads:
I donít know a lot about this picture, other than who they are. This is my maternal Great Grandparents and some of their children. My grandmother (Ola Susan Catherine McDowell) is not pictured here. I believe this picture was made in the early 1900s. One thing that always surprises me about all the old family pictures Iíve come across is that it looks like no one ever smiles. Is that indicative of the eraÖor were they unhappy people? Thatís something weíll never know. I do feel fortunate to be able to pass these pictures along and hopefully a little bit of family history at the same time.

From left to right (Top row): Ida McDowell, Sidney McDowell, and Lillie McDowell. (I do remember meeting my Great Aunt Lillie when I was a very small child Ė and I thought she was old then!).
