Stout photo

Heather, Belle Stout was my great-grandmother and Eileen was my grandmother. I have this exact photo. Small world!

Jane, I’m so glad to hear that your family has a copy of this photo. I started uploading photos to this web site, because of this specific photo. Honestly, I felt guilty for having it when I was sure there were family members out there that would treasure it. If you would like my copy, I’d be happy to mail it to you. You can e-mail me at [email protected]. Also, I think that Belle might be in another photo that I have on this web site:

Reginald & Lucy Gould were my great-grandparents. My grandmother was Viola Beatrice “Vi” (Rapson) Welch. It is my understanding that your grandmother Eileen was one of her childhood friends. I have a number of photos that my grandmother wasn’t able to identify. Many of them are of children. I have most of them scanned, but haven’t had a chance to upload them yet. It’s possible that some of them are of your family. Would you be interested in looking at them?

I hope to hear from you.
