A 4-Generation Carringer Family Picture -- Post 663 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

 I can't help it, I can't do a wordless post! This is one of my favorite photographs:

This photograph was taken in late 1919 (Christmas?) or early 1920 (Easter?) in front of the Carringer house then at 2105 30th Street in San Diego.  There are 4 generations of my ancestors (one 2nd great-grandparent, 3 great-grandparents, two grandparents, and my mother) and two relatives in this photograph, plus the cat.  The people are, from the left:

*  Georgianna (Kemp) Auble (1868-1952), seated, my great-grandmother, mother of Emily (Auble) Carrnger.
*  Mary Ann "Matie" (Smith) (Chenery) (Cramer) Morrill (1866-1922), standing, my great-grandaunt, sister of Della (Smith) Carringer.
*  Della (Smith) Carringer (1862-1944), seated holding Buster the cat, my great-grandmother, mother of Lyle Lawrence Carringer.
*  Harvey Edgar Carringer (1852-1946), standing with hat, my great-granduncle, brother of Henry Austin Carringer.
*  Emily Kemp (Auble) Carringer (1899-1977), standing, my maternal grandmother, wife of Lyle Carringer.
*  Henry Austin Carringer (1853-1946), seated, holding the baby, my great-grandfather, father of Lyle Lawrence Carringer.
*  Betty Virginia Carringer (1919-2002), on Austin Carringer's lap, my mother, daughter of Lyle Lawrence and Emily Kemp (Auble) Carringer.
*  Lyle Lawrence Carringer (1891-1976), standing on right, my maternal grandfather, and father of Betty Virginia Carringer.
*  Abigail A. (Vaux) Smith (1844-1931), seated at right, my 2nd great-grandmother, mother of Della (Smith) Carringer.

This photograph was originally black-and-white and I colorized it and enhanced using the MyHeritage InColor photo tools.  I don't see any significant flaws in the colorizing of this photograph.
