MarionCabin_1901_.jpg814 viewsOn the back, in my G-Grandmother Marilla Anderson's hand: [and her spelling]

If "Maggie" is William Reese Anderson's sister Margaret, she would be about 64 years old, in this shot. She looks about right for that age, in that family line. Her brother never did turn gray.
