Myrtle and Pearl: aren’t they pretty?

Simon Haught & granddaughters Myrtle & Pearl Ramsey 1904
My husband’s great, great granduncle Simon Haught is pictured here with his arms around his beautiful granddaughters, Myrtle Flossie Ramsey (left, born 1902) and Pearl Emmeline Ramsey (right, born 1900). Simon was born 1844, the son of Jacob B. Haught (b. 1807) and Susan Haught (b. 1811). Simon and his wife Elizabeth Campbell Haught had a daughter Alcena Eleanor Haught who married Willis Milzey Ramsey. Alcena and Willis were the parents of Myrtle and Pearl.

What a fabulous photograph. At a time when children and adults were encouraged (really, required) to be still for up to a minute to be photographed, and usually stood with stiff faces, Myrtle and Pearl look amazingly natural and comfortable. Not the stiff little wooden figures of so many other photographs. Just fabulous!
