(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 255: Four Generation Carringer/Auble/Smith Family Picture in 1920

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 picture was taken in about 1920 in San Diego, California, in front of the Carringer family home at 2105 30th Street. The persons in this picture are (from left to right):

* Georgia (Kemp) Auble (seated, 1868-1952, mother of Emily (AubleCarringer)
* Mary Ann (Smith) (CheneryCramer (standing, known as "Matie," 1866-1922, daughter of Devier and Abigail (Vaux) Smith, sister of Della (Smith) Carringer)
* Abbie Ardell (Smith) Carringer (seated holding cat, known as "Della," 1862-1944, daughter of Devier and Abigail (Vaux) Smith, wife of Austin Carringer, mother of Lyle Carringer)

* Abigail A. (Vaux) Smith (seated on right, known as "Abbie," 1844-1931, mother of Della Carringer and Mary Ann Cramer).

This is a four generation photograph with great-grandmother Abigail (Vaux) Smith, grandmother Della (Smith) Carringer, father Lyle Carringer and daughter Betty Carringer. Betty is my mother.

For those wondering, the cat's name was "Buster."
