Finding Friends and Strangers in Old Family Photos
Two photos attracted my interest because the notations on the backs mentioned “Katherine.” One showed Katherine walking with my father and I immediately realized who this had to be: my grandparents took in a foster child named Katherine Clasby when she was twelve years old. The genealogical information I have mentions her without explaining any circumstances that required fostering. Given that Katherine and even her children remained in touch with my grandmother and my aunt for all of her life, it seems that she became part of our family.
