1911 Photograph of baby Alta Leah Lucas of Oklahoma
1911 photograph of a baby identified on the reverse as "Alta Leah Lucas born 25 October 1911 near Minco, Okla.; photo taken Sept. 21, 1912 at Tuttle, Okla."
It was a shock to learn from a Find-a-Grave listing that this adorable baby died before she was two years old.
From online research, hopefully correct: [corrections welcome]
Alta Leah Lucas was born near Minco, Oklahoma, on 25 October 1911, the daughter of Thomas Ellsworth Lucas and Estella Anna (Sivils) Lucas, who were born in Ohio and Missouri, respectively.
Alta's paternal grandparents were John and Catherine (Wolf) Lucas. Her maternal grandparents were George Thomas Sivils and Mary Selma (Carlton) Sivils.
Alta had four sisters: Mary; Edna Lucille; Virginia; and Myrtle May.
Alta died 7 June 1913.
