The other day I managed to pick up another Manley photo. This time it appears to be a teen girl (best guess) & on the back is written "Sister Mercy J. Manley."I've looked close to make sure the writing isn't Mary.Even my husband thinks it's Mercy. It was taken in Ionia, MI.
In doing some checking there are two Mersy Manleys.One from Ohio & she married 2 times. First time to a Van Aken, second time to a Wilkinson.The other one was from Minnesota, living around the same time as the Ohio Mersy. Which one it might be-I have no idea. The style of the photo & her clothing looks to me as if it was taken very late 1800s, very early 1900s. Maybe someone in the family would know if she were ever in Ionia, MI.
I'd like to find family to send it to.Please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org for details.Thank you
