Genealogy Photos - Graham

Laura Ann (Graham) Smeal
b. April 17, 1883
d. October 8, 1938

I believe the photograph set forth below on the top left shows Laura Graham (Smeal) as a very young woman and Jane Dorcis Graham (Rankin), her mother (standing).  The photograph was discovered by my cousin Donna Hurley.  The obituary on the right was published in The Clearfield Progress, Clearfield, Pennsylvania, Thursday Evening, December 1, 1921, and states that Mrs. Jane D. Graham (Rankin) was born in Maine on November 28, 1858, and died on Wednesday, November 30, 1921.   The obituary also states that she was survived by a daughter, Laura Smeal.
