|Marion Moran is on the right. We aren't sure|
who the other girl is and with a plethora of cousins it's
anyone's guess as to which branch of the family
she belongs to.
Today's Photograph is dedicated to Marion Agnes Moran, the youngest child of John Williamson Moran and Sophia Riley Gunn. Marion always touches my heart in so many ways. We don't know the exact date of her birth, just that it happened in 1885 and we only know that from her headstone. Marion was just 10 years old when her mother died. From some of the letters it seems that she may have been a lonely girl and it appears there was some concern about her finding a husband. I think she was considered the "homely" child. However, Marion did marry, Charles H. Cobb of Union City, but it doesn't appear to have been a happy marriage and she ended up committing suicide October 1934. They had one child, Carolyn Elizabeth Cobb.

I love the way the older girl is holding Marion's hand, as if to say I'm here and I'll take care of you.
