Picture of Opal's cousin, Merle Scott

Elsie's baby's name was Merle Scott. She was born in February 1905. as the diary describes. This photo was taken when she was a young teen.

Opal writes in her diary that she is going to pick out a name for her from her books. The word "Merle" is French for blackbird. You can see her lovely dark hair and eyes in this photo.
