Katie is wearing a dress made by her great-great-great-grandmother, Evelyn Agnes Whitson. The dress has been worn by my grandmother, mother, me and now my daughter. I was a little worried it would be too small since I was three when I wore it, but we made it work and I got the photo!
Evelyn was born in 1893, one hundred eighteen years before Kaitlin was born. She married Jess Leon Williams in Okfuskee County, Oklahoma in 1913, and had 8 children, one of which is my great-grandfater Bus Williams. She passed away in 1965 at the age of 72.
Her husband, Jess, passed away in 1990. He was my great-great grandfather and I actually have several memories of him and his home. Pretty cool, huh? Not many people can say they remember their great-great-grandparent.
