Orphan Photo #45

Orphan013A5[1]

Orphan 013-B

This real photo postcard was originally featured on my other blog, GenBlog.

The message reads:

For her Great Grandmother Tower

From Ruth Evelyn Tower

Taken when she was 10 weeks old

Born June 6, 1913 Glendale, Calif.

Lots of interesting info here!

According to the 1910 census, it appears that Ruth Evelyn Tower is the daughter of Aplunso[?] and Pearl Tower.  She’s listed as living in Glendale at the age of 6.  Both parents were born in Indiana.

I find a Ruth Tower Hodgson in the California Death Index (Ancestry) with the same birth date as that listed on the postcard.  I was able to track down her son and have reunited him with this wonderful photo!
