Here's a photo to celebrate the mothers in my family tree.
This is a photo of Lulu (Flynn) Elson in June 1914 after the birth of her first child, daughter Vinnie. Though Lulu was a mother at least four times, she left no descendents. Her two daughters never married. She had an infant die a day after birth. Her son, Harris, died during WWII, and she never found out how, much to her sorrow. I discovered her son's fate in an airplane crash in Myanmar (Burma) in Lost Boys of WWII.
