This was my grandmother.

My mother, to this day, will not tell me what happened to her mother. I found out from my father about six years ago, and have since then scoured the Internet, but today was the first time I ever got any hits.

BTW - Man, you people are cruel and insensitive. Did you ever think that MAYBE SOMEDAY (like today?) someone from the family might find this? You're horrible people.

Mr. Sutpen, if will will still help me after I chastised you guys - from where did you get this photo and caption? I have been trying to find out the truth about my grandmother for years (without of course, asking my mother). It looks to be an entry from a newspaper. And, thank you for the extra information - on the heels of this information, I found more. But I would still like to know the origin of this entry. Thank you.
