(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 123: George and Emily (Richmond) Taylor

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

Here is a photograph from the Seaver//Richmond family collection handed down by my mother in the 1988 to 2002 time period:

This photograph is of George Russell Taylor (1865-1945) and Emily White (Richmond) Taylor (1879-1966), who resided in San Diego after their marriage in 1901 in Leominster, Massachusetts.  I don't know the exact date of this photograph, but I'm guessing that it was taken in the 1920s or 1930s, based on the apparent age of George and Emily.

Emily White (Richmond) Taylor was the sister of my grandmother, Alma Bessie (Richmond) Seaver (1882-1962).  They were daughters of Thomas and Julia (White) Richmond of Killingly CT and Leominster MA. 

Aunt Emily, her daughter Dorothy (Taylor) Chamberlain, and Dorothy's daughter Marcia Chamberlain were the only known extended family in the San Diego area, and our families often got together on holidays - especially the Fourth of July and Christmas.  I never knew George Taylor, but adored Aunt Emily, who acted like a grandmother to my brothers and me.
