LULA DAWSON BLILEY

August 6, 1875--March 16, 1945
Born: Corry, Pennsylvania
Buried: Erie, Pennsylvania
Spouse: Frank Anderson Bliley

This photo shows what she wore and looked like in 1902 at the age of 26 as she headed out West to California with her grandmother on a five month trip. Most of the trip was by train.

The photo was found at the end of a 70 page travel journal she wrote about this trip. There are no other photos of her or those she visited on that trip. Too bad!

However, she did put together a magnificent family photo album in the early 1930s. (Look below)

 

Journal ClippingTo the left is a clipping of the bottom of the last page of her journal, as she ammeded it in the early 1930s when it was typed up. It provides a sample of her handwriting at the age of approximately 55 years. (Click here for an enlargement.)
