Minnie’s Sister Maud. Maud was one of Hazel’s aunts. I have a much later picture of Maud (click here). This studio portrait was made in Helena Montana. The original is not dated but Maud looks around eighteen here so I’m guessing it was taken around 1902.
Vernon F. Raver the first son of Minnie Raver. Vernon was born in October of 1904 and he looks about six months here so this portrait was made sometime in 1905. Vernon did not fare as well as his sisters, they all lived into their nineties, but Vernon died just short of sixty.
Callie Davis, one of Minnie's sisters, and Frank Smelser wedding portrait. May 17, 1905. Frank was 11 years older than Callie and died long before her. Callie remarried when she was 56 to Thomas B. Aspling. She buried one daughter Genevieve. I do not know what became of her.
