001ggThis is another tintype where the mother’s face was cut off the top of the photo.  No identifying information, but the baby looks very much like Aunt Annie’s youngest child, Raymond Irl Forkner, and the mother’s torso looks like Aunt Annie.  She had a habit of removing herself from photos she did not like throughout the years!  They always called their youngest child Little Ray.  He was born in 1890 and only lived ten short years, dying in 1901 of some sort of flu or bronchitis that probably went into pneumonia.  He is buried at the Graceland Cemetery in Conway, Missouri.
