I have found a photo of a very pretty young woman in my mothers things. It was part of the photos that her mother (Bertha) left for her.
On the back is written:
-------“Prean Kelsey”------ “To Bertha G. Armstrong”
I assume Prean was a friend of Bertha’s.
The photo doesn’t have a date but to give you clues: Bertha Armstrong (1880-1935) was born in Cadosia. She was the daughter of William & Phoebe (Avery) Armstrong of the Hancock area. In 1903, in Hancock, Bertha married William H. Shaffer (1873-1952), born in Tompkins. Wm was 1 of 7 sons of Michael & Mary (Walsh) Shaffer of Tompkins, Delaware Co., NY
