I wonder what the rest of the room looks like.
|Hester and Milton on their 50th anniversary.|
Back row, from left: Edith, Virgil, Mildred, Merle, Goldie.
Front row, from left: Pauline, Hester, Milton, Paul.
At eighteen, she married Milton Davis on September 28, 1896, in Hamilton County, Illinois. Their first child, Edith, was born in 1897. They had six more children: Goldie (1901), Virgil (1903), Merle (1906), Mildred (1910), and twins, Paul and Pauline (1916).
Between 1910 and 1914, the Davis family moved from McLeansboro to Vincennes, Indiana. Milton opened a furniture store there. (Maybe that's where she got the nice furniture in the photo.) Hester died in Vincennes on May 7, 1951.
In addition to the pictures of Hester, I also treasure the topaz necklace that she owned.
