Thursday

10 days of family (day four)

This is my Great Great Grandmother Marie Berta Frisina. She died when my mother was 15 years old. Here she is holding her son James Frisina, Sr. (my Great Grandfather). James Frisina, Sr. is the father of my mother's father, James Frisina, Jr.
 James was born May 18, 1911... so this photo is probably dated around 1913-1915. He was the State Amateur Golf Champion 5 years in a row for the State of Illinois. No one has ever repeated that kind of success in Illinois history. Here are some photos of me wearing the only momento I have belonging to my Great Great Grandmother Marie.. her beautiful necklace and matching earrings.
I would kill to have a photo of her wearing the necklace and earrings!
love, polly :)
