Great Grandma Irene and Grandma Doris at the Beach
My Great Grandmother Irene is pictured at the Cedar Point beach with her young daughter Doris, about 1913 or 1914. With them are family friends Anna and Paul Miller. When I asked my mother to tell me more about Anna and Paul Miller, she could only tell me that they moved out of the area, and that Paul died young. Gram Irene would go on to have a lot of heartache, in regards to relationships, personal finances, and losing dear loved ones when they were way too young to die. But in this beach scene, she appears to be having a quiet relaxing day with little Doris, Anna, and Paul. (I wish I had a better quality image of this picture!)
