1896 on his 10th Birthday from
Bessie + Elvie Hutchins"
Bessie Hutchins was born in 1884. Her sister Elvie was born in 1886. Their father, Myron, was a farmer and later, a traveling salesman. At age 24, Elvie was a grade school teacher and at 34, she was married to Clarence Favell, a musician. Bessie married Ervin Peart, a high school teacher.
The girls have flowers pinned to their dresses and in their hair, and Bessie is wearing a pair of eyeglasses. Interestingly, this is the third photograph I have from Stevens Point, Wisconsin!
If you know who these girls may be, let us know in the comments!
