Fantasy Family

These pictures are from this site--A wonderful wealth of possible family discoveries for genealogists!


1. I don't know these people, I'll bet they were kind and wonderful.
2. I make it all up, no ill will is intended.


Aggie was always a fashion forward girl. Tired of wearing black shoes with black stockings every day, she would spend her time in school doodling in her tablet while imagining such wonders as colored stockings (like maybe a daring dark blue) and ribbon laced boots. She wanted to design clothing and accessories that would stand out. She was often found sitting, as punishment, in the corner of the one room school house after Miss Bore would catch her daydreaming with pencil to paper instead of doing her arithmetic. She didn't care. It gave her more time to think and dream and imagine. She certainly knew in her heart she could do better than the milliner who came up with the creation that she had seen Miss Bore wearing upon her head at the last church social.
