We all have a story to tell. Some speak louder than others. Listen closely to hear the stories of our ancestors echoing under our footsteps. They are the authors. We are the keepers.

Wordless Wednesday: Mother and Infant: On the Threshold of a Dream

Mother and Infant: On the Threshold of a Dream, taken near farm in Duluth, Minnesota, c.1907. Photograph in Helen Julia (Hogue) Judson's Family Album, 1903-1907. Privately held by Herstoryan, Houston, Texas. 2009 [inherited from Lois Jacqueline (Judson) Wells, through her father William Levis Judson son of Helen Julia (Hogue) Judson of Dayton, Ohio]

Unidentified mother and child from an old Judson family album. Using the captions from the surrounding photos this was taken near the M. E. Richards Cabins near Kinney, MN. 

*I believe this might be Grace E. (Richards) Davis and son William R. Davis. Grace was the daughter of   J. William and Henrietta (Hogue) Richards. She married Ralph J. Davis. 


  1. What a beautiful picture - I hope that you are able to find out who this is.

  2. What a wonderful photo. Unusually candid for the era. Thank you for sharing it.

  3. Your family images are absolutely DIVINE HERstoryan! I too hope to hear you've learned of the loving Mother -- her gaze says it all...
