I love this photo! I’ve been looking forward to sharing it since my first pass through the album a few years ago. Leona Ellis is my great-grandfather’s niece. Isn’t she darling?
Correctly identifying Leona was fairly easy. I looked at the descendants of my 2nd great-grandfather, Frederick William Ellis, and found only one Leona in the right time period. Looking through her photos on FamilySearch, I found a photo of her wearing the same coat and hat with her dog and sled. That photo was uploaded by Leona’s niece. I love it when I don’t need to message lots of other FamilySearch users to help identify an individual in a photo!
This post is part of a series sharing this wonderful old family photo album. You can learn more about the album here. A digital version of this photo album can be viewed on Flickr here.
