Family Photographs - Post 7: Three Generations

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

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

This photograph was taken in September 1920, probably by my grandfather, Lyle Carringer. The three females in this picture are (left to right):

* Georgia (Kemp) Auble (1868-1952) - mother of Emily and grandmother of Betty.

* Betty Virginia Carringer (1919-2002) - daughter of Emily, and my mother!

* Emily Kemp (Auble) Carringer (1899-1977) - daughter of Georgia and mother of Betty.

Georgia's husband, Charles Auble, died of a fall in the house in 1916, and widow Georgia resided with Lyle and Emily (Auble) Carringer for the rest of her life.

This photograph is in the family photograph collection handed down from my mother to me after 1988.
