Mauve & Gray Mystery Woman

 Tennessee Mystery Woman

This beautiful lady was a surprise when I took my husband's grandmother's photo out of a frame that was in his mother's cedar chest. At first I thought it might be one of those pre-printed prints that smile up at you when you purchase a new frame - one that you feel you should know, but don't; one that has 8 x 10 and the manufacturer stamped across the front! It isn't one of those. It is definitely a studio portrait, but has no markings on the back except some penciled numbers that are common on some photographs.

Someone had placed Leola Hitch Davis Ray's studio portrait on top of this one. Her daughter, Marilee Davis Shubert, had the framed pictures in her home at the time of her death. Leola's picture wasn't removed for a long time, and when it was removed in order for me to scan it, I discovered this very pretty lady.

Marilee went to college at Carson Newman in Jefferson City, Tennessee, so I thought she might be a friend from school. Or she may have been a friend of her mother's, Leola. Leola left Tennessee and moved to Florida. Then again she may have been another member of the family: a Davis, a Delozier, a Burns.

If there is ANYONE out there who recognizes her, please, please contact me. I would love to be able to connect her with a family member. My email is in my profile on the right, or you can leave a comment at the bottom of this post.
