Family Photographs - Post 25: Sisters and Cousins

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 Seaver/Richmond family collection:

This photograph was taken in 1958 at the Marshall Chamberlain home at 4601 Terrace Drive in San Diego.
The persons in this picture are, from the left:
* Emily White (Richmond) Taylor (1879-1966), daughter of Thomas and Julia (White) Richmond, and widow of George Taylor.
* Evelyn (Seaver) Wood (1903-1978), daughter of Frederick W. and Alma Bessie (Richmond) Seaver, wife of Walter H. Wood.
* Alma Bessie (Richmond) Seaver (1882-1962), daughter of Thomas and Julia (White) Richmond, and widow of Frederick W. Seaver.
* Dorothy (Taylor) Chamberlain (1904-1992), daughter of George and Emily (Richmond) Taylor, and wife of Marshall Chamberlain.
Emily Taylor and Alma Bessie Seaver are sisters, and Evelyn (Seaver) Wood and Dorothy (Taylor) Chamberlain are first cousins.
Alma Bessie (Richmond) Seaver was my paternal grandmother.
This photograph was in the possession of my mother in 1988 when she gave it to me.
