FORKNER FAMILY – About 1890-91

002bThese are the four children of Leonidas Olander Forkner (Lon) and Matilda Anna Laura (Annie L. McMenus) Forkner, taken about 1890-91.  They are all dressed in dresses, even though there were two girls and two boys.  Ednah is on the left, then Oscar in front, Ethyl standing at the back, then Little Ray on the right.  Little Ray (that’s what they always called him) died in 1901, probably from pneumonia.


  1. Boys commonly wore “skirts” until age 4-5 during this time.
