We believe Minnie herself, when a married woman and much later, wrote the inscription on the back with her married name of Minnie S. Vincent. She crosses off the abbreviation "yrs" and changes it to 5 mos. This old clearly signed photo was found in Geneva, Ontario & Seneca County, New York NY. A beautiful lace gown and a much loved baby. It took some work to find her, but we are glad we did.

Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
