This is a picture of my grandmother, Freda Becker, born 1891. The photo was taken in Cincinnati around 1897. When my grandmother was about nine, just after 1900, the family moved to New Jersey.

  1. I just love both of these photos! It is really a treasure to have such memories of the family. My Mother does not have many photos of her childhood, or her grandparents. In fact, my immediate family does not have any photos of my mother when she was a child. We are trying to share the photos among the remaining family members, but everyone’s life is so busy these days. I am writing a book about our family, and it would help immensely to see family photos. Thanks so much for sharing.
