Minnie E. Raver 1881-1977. Minnie was one of my great grandmothers. She was married to Bert Raver and her maiden name was Davis. Minnie was the mother of Hazel. Until I inherited some of Minnie's pictures I didn't even know her first name. I remember her as an old woman. This partially hand tinted studio portrait was not dated but I would place it at least ten years before my birth.
Vernon and Minnie Raver in Marble Canyon Arizona 1949. In every one of Minnie's snapshots Vernon strikes the same pose.
I believe this is an old girl friend of Howell C. Davis Minnie's dad. The only remark is a cryptic note on the back of the photo. I don't know who this woman is or what became of her but I like the shot. My estimated date of 1880 is just a guess based on Howell's age.
