I think when William Lincoln Hart met Bessie Mallory, he must have just fallen into the huge pool of her eyes. Wonder if it was love at first sight?
Based on the size of youngest child, I would guess that photo was taken in approximately 1904. Back row : Daisy Janet "Jean" Hart and Robert Lincoln Hart
Middle row Dwight W,, Willard M, and Rosalie Irene
Front is Irwan C Hart
Bessie is identified as being on the left in the photo with Maudie. However her sisters names were Allie and Cordelia. Not sure who Maudie might be.
Daisy Eloise Mallory's nickname was Bessie. In this photo she appears like she could be 4 or 5
years of age.
In 1960, the three Mallory sisters reunited after 72 years. Sitting in the same position as their glamour picture Allie Mallory Rust in top left, Lottie Mallory Babcock in upper right and Daisy Eloise Mallory Hart sitting in front. They traveled from different parts of the U.S. to meet in Highland Park, California where Bessie's oldest daughter Jean Alkire lived. The reunion was written up in the local paper. However, it said that Bessie had traveled from Vancouver, British Columbia. Apparently the California reporter from the great metropolis of L.A. didn't know there was a Vancouver, Washington where Bessie lived with other members of her family.
This photo was taken in 1888 of the three Mallory sisters. Back left is Ellen Mae "Allie" Mallory age 16, and to her left is Charlotte Cordelia Mallory age 17. In front is my Great Grandmother Daisy Eloise Mallory age 13. Here they show off their very long hair as was popular in the Victorian age.
