Friday's Photo: A Baby's Death

Last year, another Hairston descendant (Carla) showed me this picture. The woman looked familiar and I scanned the picture. Recently, I started comparing this picture to others and realized that this was my grandmother, Myrtie Hairston Bryan, who died in 1927. 

Noting that this is probably a postmortem picture, it would have to be one of two babies who died soon after birth; Redic Eli Bryan Jr. who died in 1913, or R. E. Bryan who died in 1916.  Redic Eli Bryan Jr. was less than a month old when he died and the baby in this picture looks older than one month. I assume that the the baby in this picture is R. E. Bryan who died at three months on December 31, 1916. The following obituary was found in the Bryan family bible.
