ANNIE L. McMENUS – August, 1884

003aThis is a tintype of my great aunt Annie L. McMenus taken around her 16th birthday in August, 1884.  She was named after her father’s three youngest sisters, Hannah, Matilda, and Laura McMenus, but she shortened Hannah to Anna, and as a girl, she was known as Annie.   She had several young men writing her letters and courting her at this stage.  She married Lon Forkner two years after this photo was taken.
