Photographs of my great-grandma

My cousin Russell recently emailed me some family pictures, which I hoped contained the first photos I've ever seen of my great-grandma, Lilly May (McDaid) Atkinson. Russell couldn't say for sure, so I emailed them to my dad who confirmed my suspicions! She was my grandfather, Charles Atkinson's mother, and I remember my grandma saying that she never got along with her mother-in-law because May (as she was known) had someone else picked out for her son to marry. I'm always seeing evidence that people today are no more petty than people who lived in the past!

The slideshow below includes the three photos that show May Atkinson. The captions in quotes (" ") are my dad's comments, the rest of the info is what I have added.

Great-grandma is buried with her husband and daughter at West Alexander Memorial Cemetery in Pennsylvania.
