Ellis Album, Photo 51 – Blanche Lenore Cheney


CHENEY, Blanche Lenore

Blanche Lenore Cheney

Blanche Lenore Cheney is my 2nd great-grandaunt.  She was born 5 January 1886 in Laketown, Utah.  She was the youngest of eight children born to Joseph Thompson Cheney and Louise Maria Austin, my 3rd great-grandparents.  In 1921, she married Farrel Andrew Whitlock.  They had four children that I know of.  Blanche passed away 15 February 1971 in Fullerton, California.  Blanche was the maternal aunt of my great-grandmother, Blanche Octavia Huband, the creator of this wonderful album.  Isn’t this a lovely portrait?



This photo comes from the twenty-seventh page of the album.  Here are pages twenty-six and twenty-seven to give context for this photo:

  1. She has a Mona Lisa smile only she’s prettier & I just love her beautiful dress. I think she had naturally curly hair. Mine would look like her’s, if it were long & I tried to style it with water to smooth it!

  3. Lovely. Her clothing is so beautifully tailored. She looks like a woman who would have been worth getting to know. 🙂
