We broke the glass on one of the framed pictures my late mother had, and found another picture behind it. I had never seen this one before, and I don’t know who the girl in the picture is. She is about three to four years old, and is all dressed up for Sunday School. I have no idea how old this photo is.

My grandmother was a Whitaker from Linefork and this little girl is a Whitaker, so she may be kin to me.

Mom must have thought a lot about this girl, and her parents spent a lot of money on getting the photo enlarged to an 8×10.

On the back is written “Alama Kaye (Raye?) Whitaker, Seco, Ky.” No dates.

Who is she? Is she still alive? Is she your mother, grandmother sister, aunt? Do you want the picture?

I urge everyone to go through all your old and new photos and write on the back who they are, and when the photo was taken. Future generations will want to know.
