In the past I have written about Cora Annie Amelia Dinnis who was my grandfathers (Joseph Taylor Dinnis) oldest sister. She married Alfred Watson in 1911 and they had two daughters, Elsie and Amelia (Millie). Cora is my grand-aunt, and her children Elsie and Amelia (Millie) are my first cousins, once removed. I only recently learned about the children, and Cora has been little more than a name on the family tree up until now.
Some photographs turned up unexpectedly last week, and I was able to ‘meet’ Cora’s husband Alf, and also Elsie and Millie. There’s something special about seeing their faces, which makes them so real to me. I’d like you to meet Alfred Watson, here he is with Cora, although I’m not too sure which lady is Cora.
And here are Millie and Elsie, I believe Elsie is the taller of the girls on the left, and Millie is next to her. There is some writing on the back, saying ‘Our two with little visitor, 1924’. I haven’t yet had time to look into their family history, no doubt I shall return to them sometime in the future.
