Tom Schwartz has been photographing and researching Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Jefferson County KY since 1991. Tom found this original portrait of a Mary Lee about four months ago on the third floor between two walls. Mary appears to be about fifteen or sixteen years old in the photo, which Tom estimates to have been taken in the late 1940's.
After Tom found the 1954 obituary of 21-year-old Mary Rhea Stevens on our Webster County Message board, he is wondering if the Mary Lee of the photo is the same person as the Mary Rhea Stevens, who was a native of Clay.
Further information would be gratefully received.
