My Granddaughter is being Christened next month and it prompted me to get the old suitcase out and take a look at the special things my Grandmother, Agnes Stewart, saved. One special item is her mother’s Christening Gown. So this gown belonged to my Great Grandmother, Agnes Goodrich Todd. She was born in 1876.
My Great Grandmother –
as a young girl –
around 1905 – pictured with her children – Todd, Hobart and Harriet
around 1940 – Agnes Todd Nies – married to Henry Nies
My Father, age 3 months, looks like he is wearing a Christening Gown?
My Grandma Agnes, my Father’s Mother, was great at labeling everything, dates, names, who passed down what to whom. I need to continue this tradition because it is so nice knowing who is who in old pictures!
