I took a copy of Feather Girl to the Southern California Genealogy Jamboree, in 2011, to show to Maureen Taylor, The Photo Detective. Could this possibly be my grandmother? Maureen didn't think so, but did include Feather Girl in a webinar she produced for the members of the Southern California Genealogy Society.
Despite being seen by hundreds of people, Feather Girl remained unnamed.
Well, last month, I received a picture from my not so distant cousin, Jane, who asked, This is a pic of Laura Isabel Wylie . . . . . any chance Laura could be your "feather girl?” Possibly, but it was hard to tell. HOWEVER, last week, Jane sent another picture of Laura Isabel Wylie wearing Feather Girl's dress and necklace.
