Received this from my cousin, Gayle Neuhaus, after I posted my grandmother’s picture (see here) last Wednesday…
“My two bows trump your one bow.”
My Mom, Arlene Frances Fredrickson Neuhaus, on the right,
descended from the Ballous.
Her cousin, Pauline Fredrickson on left.
Arlene born in 1913, Pauline in 1914.
Must have been the era of the bows, as your bow was 1913.
Aren’t they adorable?

When I saw your “Bow” picture last week, it brought back a memory…of going thru Mom’s picture box, where I first saw my “Bows” picture. From the time I was six, this was one of my favorite pastimes. The pictures were kept in a heavy cardboard beer box. This box of pictures traveled with us from California to Nebraska.
I miss that tattered old box, but I still have my ancestors pictures and my memories.
I know what you mean! I used to do the same thing, always asking my mother, “Who is this?” Mom’s box was a Sears coat box she kept under her bed.

This photo is gorgeous and priceless! I LOVE old family photos! I’m so glad I was interested enough that I went through a box of family photos and other paper memorabilia with my Grandma (Elva Elwood Van Deveer) and had tell me who the people were so I could write on the back of them. Now, about 50 years later, I am able to use those identified photos on http://www.findagrave.com and Ancestry.com and share them with other people! Much thanks to Gayle Neuhaus for her time and dedicated work on findagrave!
