Baxter and Sisters

Gertrude, Baxter, and Josephine



     Here is my young grandfather, Baxter Taylor, flanked by his older sister Gertrude (left) and younger sister Emma Josephine. The picture must have been taken in the late 1890s. Josephine died at the age of thirty-six, in 1915, the wife of Charles Taylor. Her son James was adopted by her sister Gertrude and Harvey Hannah. James Hannah and his cousin Bob (my father) corresponded until Jim's death in 1982, a year before my father himself died.
