William and Mary (Everitt) Bolt, c1890-1900
Mary Everitt Bolt is my Great-Great-Great Grandmother. She is about as far back as I have been able to go on my matrilineal line, which so far consists of Mary > Mina > Mae > Helen > Mary > Me. I love this picture and that it was made in Detroit.
I’m planning to sift through my family photos with some help from this blog post from Ancestry.com. – “

Helen Dorothy Oakes Wilson, 1912-1988
