Ellis Album

Black Ellis Album #1, Page 37


This album page features one lovely photo of four smiling women. The photo is labeled with first names only—Hazel, Luetta, Ethel, and Bertha.

Hazel was easy to identify. She appears in many photos in this album and several labels include her last name, Berrett. Hazel Margaret Berrett married Will Gibson. Hazel and Will were dear friends of my great-grandparents.

Bertha also appears in the album more than once. In another photo she is labeled “Bertha Daniels.” Bertha Carrie Randall married Ray Daniels. She has many photos attached to her profile on FamilySearch making it easy to compare those images with this one.

Luetta and Ethel were sisters, Mary Luetta and Sarah Ethel Randall. A living granddaughter of Luetta confirmed that I correctly identified Luetta and Ethel in this photo. Bertha was their first cousin.

I am delighted that I was able to identify each woman despite the minimal information on this album page!
