    Eva and Frank Hutton with Bettie
    Eva and Frank Hutton with Bettie
    The lady holding the baby is Eva Williams Hutton. Her husband Frank is beside her. Their baby is Bettie Hutton. The older couple I believe to be John and Harriet Williams. I don't know who the other people are, but the ladies look very much like Eva. Frank only had one sister, while Eva had 7 brothers and sisters. My grandmother Bettie looks less than a year, so the picture had to be taken around 1905.

    See other picture for more info. The baby is Bettie Hutton, so I believe the picture was taken around 1905, more than likely in Loogootee, Indiana.

    This quilt was made by my Maternal Grandmother, Maggie Wade, at the Sr. Center. It was raffled and won by my Paternal Grandmother, Bettie Chestnut. The Senior Citizen Center is just up the block from both grandmothers' homes, and now their granddaughter, Sylvia Albaugh, is the Martin County Sr. Center Director.
