Friday's Photo/Rufus & Sarah Ivory of Michigan

     I really like the relaxed, familiar way this little girl is leaning against her father, though she looks pretty bored with holding still for the photographer.  On the back of this picture...

     The names Rufus and Sarah Ivory and daughter Una are clear.  At first I thought Hadley might be the girl's married name after she had grown up, but in fact it is the name of the town in Michigan where they lived.  Una is the youngest child in the family, born in Michigan in 1880.  This probably explains the pose, I'd bet she was the apple of Daddy's eye.  Una married Fred Bartenfelder, and passed away in Michigan in 1941.
