Wordless Wednesday: Family Resemblance
Great-great-grandmother Tresa Elizabeth Merritt was born on February 16, 1886 in Butte, Montana.
Daughter Selah Elizabeth Coller was born on
August 22, 2006 in Baker City, Oregon.
I came across the first picture, Tresa, in my genealogy research last year. While, not knowing my daughter, you might not see a lot of resemblance, I'm telling you that these people could be identical! The picture of g-g-grandma Tresa looks exactly like my daughter Selah when she's not smiling. I'd love to recreate the shot---but I'm not sure I can get Selah to NOT smile for the camera!
**Update: My mom just reminded me that today would have been my great-grandmother Annabelle's birthday. She is the daughter of Tresa and the one that I feel Selah looks the most like. How neat that I would choose this subject for today!
