Fearless Females - Day 2 - Pearl Chilcutt Willis

Once again, in honor of National Women’s History Month, Lisa Alzo of The Accidental Genealogist blog presents Fearless Females: 31 Blogging Prompts to Celebrate Women’s History Month.

March 2 — Post a photo of one of your female ancestors. Who is in the photo? When was it taken? Why did you select this photo?

This photo is of my great-grandmother Pearl Chilcutt Willis and her son James (aka Shug). I don't have an exact date for this one, but would guess it was taken around 1930 in Maryland.  I only have a few pictures of Pearl and this is the only one that gives a glimpse into what her home looked like. When I saw this picture, I was struck by how much my grandmother Edna looked like her.
