Two Rogers sisters

This picture was taken in 1902 of the first two Rogers girls born to Mattie and Willard Rogers. Edna (1901-2001) and Clara (1900 - 1980) were the sixth and seventh children born to Willard and Mattie, who raised seven boys and five girls.

Next we see Clara and then Edna with their youngest sister, my Grandma, Leone Shelton. the picture of Clara was taken in late 1979, a few months before her death and the picture of Edna was taken in the 1980s. Edna died on Dec 10, 2001, just two days shy of her 100th birthday.
