Ellis Album, Photo 55 – Della Maude Cheney

CHENEY, Della Maude, 1914
Della Maude Cheney, 1914

Della Maude Cheney is my 2nd great-grandaunt.  She is the daughter of Joseph Thompson Cheney and Louise Maria Austin, my 3rd great-grandparents.  This photo is a postcard that Aunt Dell gave to my great-grandmother, Blanche Octavia Huband.  It was cut down, but a portion of the note from Aunt Dell is still visible:

I love Aunt Dell’s lace collar in this photo.  Isn’t it lovely?




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 really is beautiful. Interesting that the postcards were all cut down. I have a few but they are all in their original shape.
