|The above photo is of Mrs. Charlotta / Charlottie / Lottie (DADE) LANKFORD/ LANKFARD. |
The photo was taken outside the Lankford/ Lankfard Family home
at 2411 Messanie St. in 1892 in St. Joseph, Missouri.
Charlotta about 38 was standing on the porch area of the entrance way of the home.
Her 7 children, husband and family dog were on the right of her.
She appears to have a book in her hand.
|This photo of Charlotta may have been in her latter years. |
It's nice to know that she knew how to read and write.
She looks like she was a well kept woman.
In Charlotta Lankford / Lankfard's lifetime, she was daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, in law and friend. (I believe that she was a child of God. Sister in the Lord.)
But not many knew that she was the mother in law of actress, Hattie McDaniel. Charlotta's son, Nym and Hattie were listed in Denver, Colorado in 1918. ( I didn't know until 2009 or so.
