This is a photo, given to me by my mother, of my great, great grandparents, my grandmother and great aunt (Both granddaughters of Amos and Arminda). I have no idea where this picture was taken or what year as there is no writing on the picture. I’m trying to piece together my Bledsoe/Lawson family and hopefully will find some more information to share or connect with someone else here.
Amos M. Bledsoe b Feb 1878 Scott Co, VA d Aug 1954 son of Alfred Bledsoe and Keziah Moore.
Arminda Gilliam b 1877 Scott Co, VA d 1963 daughter of Aaron Gilliam and Sarah Ash.
The two little girls are:
Nadine Lawson (my grandmother’s sister)
Addie Lawson (Holding doll) (My grandmother)
Both girls are the daughters of Cynthia Jane Bledsoe and Doyle D. Lawson.
Cynthia Jane Bledsoe daughter of Amos Bledsoe and Arminda Gilliam.
Doyle D. Lawson son of Haston Lawson and Laura Elizabeth Gilreath.
