This 20th century photograph is identified as Mrs. Everest of New York State. Her dress is very ruffled, which is one of the fashions of the early 1900s. Her hair style is severe though, scraped back from her face and very small bangs. There’s no photographer information. Interestingly, in the photo album written below the photo opening is written Bella Scarborough wife of William Scarborough Mother was sister of Wm. L. Mearns. While Mrs. Everest’s photo was possibly tucked into a random opening, the note does help us in finding a connection within the Mearns family.
There are numerous empty spaces that once held the following photographs: Bella Scarborough, her mother, grandmother & son Austin; Bella Scarborough’s Mother; Howard & Margurite Scarborough, children of Bella; Austin Scarborough; Emma & ?; James Mearns Brother of William L. Mearns; William Cameron, Husband of Jennie Scarborough; Ruth C. Gifford; Howard & Margurite Scarborough (#2); William Cameron; Jane Cameron; and Howard Scarborough.
