scan0179bThis photo was taken February 9, 1902 and shows little Royal Collier, 4 years of age, on the occasion of his birthday.  This photo belonged to my Great Aunt Anna, who lived with her family at that time near Conway, Missouri,  The Colliers were neighbors.  My mother found this photo down in an envelope with others of small children who died young, including Aunt Annie’s own little boy, Raymond Irl Forkner.  Royal grew to manhood but, sadly, was killed in WWI.  Such a fancy collar and bow on the shirt!
