Fearless Females March 2nd
This is my 3rd Great Grandmother, Mary Elizabeth Deverney Valley. I found this photo in a box of stuff that my Aunt has. I estimate that the photo was taken about 1860. Mary would have been in her early 20's in this photo. I choose this photo because I find her very striking. I have been trying to learn more about her. I frequently wonder what she was like and what wa her life like.
