Picture of Opal's aunt and uncle

Elsie and her young husband are Opal's aunt and Uncle Walter and Lelia Scott. They were her neighbors and are very kind to her.

Opal believes the angels who bring babies from heaven have brought them the wrong baby. Their baby's name was Merle Scott, born in February 1905.

Their older child, Harold, is also mentioned in the diary. He is about three years old in the diary.
