Betty and Emily (Auble) Carringer in About 1919 -- Post 565 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

An Auble cousin gifted me with a photograph album of her family several years ago which included quite a few photos of my grandmother, Emily Kemp (Auble) Carringer and her parents, Charles and Georgianna (Kemp) Auble.

Included in the photo album, created by Bessie (Auble) Pentecost in about 1930, was this intriguing photo:

This photograph is of my mother, Betty Virginia Carringer (1919-2002) and her mother, Emily (Auble) Carringer in late 1919 or early 1920.  Betty was born 30 July, and appears to be three or four months old in this photo.  The setting is unknown, but it is likely in San Diego - perhaps the house at 2054 Harrison Street that the Lyle Carringer family lived in in 1919 after their marriage.  

Several years ago, while doing Auble research, a descendant of Will and Bessie (Auble) Pentecost contacted me and offered the album to me, telling me that it had many photographs of the family of my grandparents (Lyle and Emily (Auble) Carringer).  I have kept the album intact in case she ever wants it back, but have digitized many of the photos of my Carringer and Auble families. 

Unfortunately, there were no photographs of the parents of Charles Auble, David and Sarah (Knapp) Auble of Terre Haute, Indiana.
