In my Grandmother's things I found a picture of Mabel Allen, her name is on the back of the picture and a note saying "Cousin of Karnes".I have never been able to find out who this person is and how she relates to my Karnes family.
The picture is on heavy cardstock and was taken in Clarksville, Tenn.I would guess it was taken abt 1900 based on the hairstyle and clothing.The card is torn on one side, but the image is in remarkably good condition.
I'd love to find out who this mystery lady is and I'd be happy to share a scan.
