(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 232: Aunt Emily in 1960

 I am posting photographs from my family collections for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday (you know me, I can't go wordless!).

Here is a photograph from the Marion (Seaver) (Braithwaite) Hemphill family collection passed to me by Aunt Marion's daughter in 2000 after her passing. 

This is the Aunt Emily I remember from my childhood.  Sweet, somewhat stern, and proud of her home and family.  She was born Emily White Richmond in 1879 in Killingly, Connecticut to Thomas and Julia (White) Richmond.   Emily is the sister of my grandmother, Alma Bessie (Richmond) Seaver (1882-1962), who was my father's mother.  She married George Russell Taylor in 1901 in Leominster, Massachusetts.  They moved to San Diego before 1910.  Their daughter, Dorothy Taylor, was born in 1904, and after George died in 1945, Emily lived with Dorothy and Marshall Chamberlain at 4601 Terrace Drive in San Diego.  That is the house in the background of the picture above.  Emily died in 1966 in San Diego.

Unfortunately, I cannot recall the name of the dog...this picture was taken in about 1960.
