Fun to see the 2 Chapman girls (Matt’s maternal cousins), Terri Chapman (left) and Tracy (Chapman) Stoll (right) with their maternal great-grandmother (mine as well) in the middle at her armchair — that’s Bertha (VanMeter) Dague.
There is Christmas decor to see in the room with a snowman and brick chimney. The girls are in matching dress, and with Terri specifically interested in her watch, it makes you wonder if these matching watches were a Christmas gift.
For date, there is a helpful processing date of Jan ’73 which renders this one around Dec 25, 1972, so the girls are 7 and 9 respectively.
I’m unsure as to location.
For context, would have to guess a family holiday gathering, perhaps on Christmas day itself.
- 2019.11.16: Date corrected adjusted 1 year before given that Bertha had passed by Christmas 1972. Christmas 1971 would make Terri 6 and Tracy 8 years old. Location updated. If the “Infobox” still shows 1972 and no location — you have to “empty cache” for your web browser and it will update the InfoBox.
- Was this Christmas 1971 or earlier?
- What do we know about Bertha’s personality?
