Friday's Photo: Anna Rita Alter

Anna Rita Alter was my grandmother's first cousin. Her mother, Caroline "Carrie" Glynn, was the sister to Mary Lucy Glynn Giddens, my great-grandmother. Anna, the daughter of Caroline Glynn and William Alter, was born in the Bronx on June 7, 1905. 

Anna married Joseph John Doran in 1925 in the Bronx. It is said he died young. If so, it was before 1938 when she married James V. Morris in Dutchess County, New York. James and Anna had one child, a daughter. 

According to the obituary, Anna died at 58. She is buried, along with her husband and other relatives, in Fishkill Rural Cemetery. Anna's obituary can be seen below.
