My Great Grandmother Caroline has 18 photos in her album hopefully in chronologic order. Caroline was born in Freeport, Illinois and married her husband Joseph Murray from nearby Ridott, Illinois. Caroline and Joe had two sons born in Illinois. In her obituary it states that “Her husband and one son preceded her in death.” Nothing is known about this boy. Her other son, Henry, grew to adulthood and became my grandfather.

Caroline and husband Joseph moved to a farm near Huron, South Dakota in 1910 and remained there until their deaths.
