scan0187bMy great aunt had a “shirt tail relation” or cousin by marriage named Maud Beattie.  She came to California to visit Aunt Annie some time after she married Uncle Walter in 1923.  There are photos of her in Aunt Annie’s garden.  I think this is Maud as a young woman, and here she is below in later life, taken in Springfield, Missouri, where we know she lived.  One of my great grandmother’s sisters married into the Beattie family; they lived in and around Phillipsburg, Missouri but also in Greene County near Springfield.
