Family Treasure

This photo is quite a treasure in our family: four generations of Barry women in 1924.
The oldest lady is Emily Barry Davis, born in 1844 to the Barrys of Washington, D.C. (who have some fascinating connections to both Washington and Lincoln). On the right is her daughter, Frances "Fannie" Davis Fields, and standing in the middle is Frances' daughter Emily Barry Fields Connor. The baby is Emily Barry Connor Miller--my father's mother--at age two.

I've long thought our sweet Katharine Barry looks "very Barry," especially resembling my Granny.

What do you think?
