These photographs are all relatives from my mom’s side of the family. Below is Mary Louise Harris, a cousin of my grandmother and niece of the original owner of Walnut Avenue. She died as a small child. (The soapstone in Mama’s kitchen came from Page Harris, Mary Louise’s brother.)
I can’t remember the identity of the stern couple. I’ll have to ask Mama because I should know. The four in the photo below are my grandmother, great-grandmother, and two great-aunts. (My great-grandmother died when my grandmother was five years old.)
Creed and Maggie Scanlon were the children of the original owner. Mama hung their high school diplomas at the end of her grouping. Can you believe that she even has these? Mama taught for years at the same school.
Thanks for coming along on the tour. It will Thanksgiving time at Walnut Avenue in just two short weeks. Hard to believe!
