    This woman is part of the "Long" side of my family.
    Unfortunately I do not know her name.

    However when I saw this photograph all I could think of was Scottvez's bearded man.... So Scott... (in poker terms).... I see your bearded man and raise you the real life Rapunzel... lol !

    I couldn't imagine having hair this long today.
    I can't imagine the upkeep on hair like this back then !

      Wow - neat old family photo. Gosh, to wash that long of hair in the day must have been a chore. Bet it did not get washed that often.....maybe ?

      I have hair to my butt and to think to try and wash it with no running water would even be a choir for me

      GREAT image-- there are several known women from the late 19th century with long hair, but this is not one I know.

      Great that she is part of your family-- hope you are able to identify her at some point.

      Thanks for sharing.

      antiquerose I'm sure it probably didn't get washed often. Perhaps braided often or up.
      Thanks for looking and the love.

      Thanks Scottvez. I'm going through them all trying to compare facial features. Maybe one of the other albums will give me a clues.

      Thanks blunderbuss2.

      I hate to speculate, but could it be one of the Sutherland sisters?
    6. scottvez scottvez, 5 years ago
      Doesn't resemble them in my opinion.

      I agree with Scottvez. I see no resemblance to the Sutherland Sister's.
