My aunt has identified a group picture as most likely being the HAWTHORN family which my great aunt, Nora GENTRY,b1877, worked for as a domestic in the early 1900's in Jonesboro, Craighead Co AR. I think she took care of the children, mostly. It is a picture with three women, including Nora, and five children. I do know my aunt also identified another studio photo of Aunt Nora and a young girl, which was supposed to be the daughter of someone she took care of, sort of a governess. This HAWTHORN family was supposed to have lived on Main St in a big brick house, and were quiet well off. I can send either picture as attachment, to anyone who thinks it could be their family. Aunt Nora never married, and I am not sure when she died, or where she is buried, but most probably around Nettleton. Any new information on her would be appreciated.
