Family Photographs - Post 18: Georgianna Kemp

I'm posting old family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be wordless posts like others do - I simply am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here is one of the most precious (to me) images from my Auble/Carringer family collection:

I am pretty sure that this is a picture of Georgianna Kemp (!868-1952), who was born in Norfolk County, Ontario, and came to Chicago in the 1890's and lived with her sister's family there. At one point, she met Charles Auble and married him in 1898 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

This picture was taken in about 1898, perhaps at the time of her marriage. Doesn't she look beautiful? I think so. She is one of my great-grandmothers.

This photograph was handed down from Charles and Georgianna (Kemp) Auble to their daughter Emily Kemp (Auble) Carringer (who married Lyle L. Carringer), to their daughter Betty Virginia (Carringer) Seaver (who married Fred Seaver) to me, their son.
