This is a photograph of one of my ancestors. Back in the 70s I was helping dad sort old photos. This one looked to both of us as if the woman was dead. Recently I have read that back in the day family did take photographs of deceased relatives to remember them by as that may have been the only photograph ever taken of the deceased. I think dad and I were correct in assuming she was dead. At the time, we did not know that this was done. It seemed morbid. I guess I understand that this might be the only way to remember a loved one.
