Wordless Wednesday (Almost) ~ Edna Lillie Webster

Edna Lillie Webster

This adorable little girl is Edna Lillie Webster. She was the second child born to my maternal great-grandparents, Watson (Frederick) Emory Webster and Esther Matus Villatoro. You may know Watson as "The Traveling Dentist" here on my blog.

Edna Lillie was born in September 1912 in Santos, Sao Paulo, Brazil. This photo of her was taken in 1916 in Curitiba, Brazil. Sadly, little Edna Lillie did not survive to adulthood. Until recently, I didn't know exactly when or where she passed away. I will share these new findings in a future post.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. What a sweet face. I'm already sad knowing a sad story is coming soon. Can you tell what she is holding in her hand (besides the book)?

    1. I know Wendy! It really is sad. She's such an adorable little girl. I'm not sure what she's holding, but it kind of looks like a box of something. I see some paper inside the box. Maybe it's a box of cookies or some other kind of treat? And maybe she's holding one of the treats in her hand.

  2. Adorable little girl. I see her feet didn't even reach the floor in that chair. Smile

    1. Yes, she was too little for the chair. She must have been around 3 or 4 years old when this photo was taken. :)

  4. Cute portrait - and yes, I am wondering about the box and what she is holding too.

    1. Thank you Carol. I should probably zoom and crop the photo and perhaps share it here on my blog. But, I do suspect she's holding some kind of box that's open. I see some paper. Maybe it's a bakery box with treats inside.
