(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 253: Abbie Ardell "Della" Smith of Concordia, Kansas

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

Here is a photograph from the Seaver/Carringer family photograph collection passed to me by my mother in the 1988 to 2002 time period:

This is a photograph of Abbie Ardell "Della" Smith of Concordia, Cloud County, Kansas taken in about 1884.  She was about age 22 at the time of this photo if it was 1884.  Her parents were Devier J. and Abbie (Vaux) Smith, who moved the family in 1885 to McCook, Red Willow County, Nebraska.  Della married Henry Austin Carringer on 11 September 1887 in Wano, Cheyenne County, Kansas and came to San Diego on their honeymoon and never left.

Abbie Ardell "Della" (Smith) Carringer (1862-1944) is my great-grandmother through her son Lyle L. Carringer (1891-1976) and her granddaughter, Betty Virginia (Carringer) Seaver (1919-2002) to me.

I need to show this photograph to a photo detective to see if they can narrow the time frame down better for me based on the clothing style, hairstyle, or the setting.
