The original caption on this picture was "Dora Orlena Richmond, age 18 years Nov. 21 1899. Taken April 29 1899. To Elno." Almost certainly this is Dora Orlena Richmond, daughter of Orson R. Richmond and niece of Henrietta (Richmond) Ladd. Henrietta had a brother, Orson Richmond, who married Sarah F. Hubbard. They had at least two children: Earl, born about 1879, and Dora Orlena, born in Nov 1881, probably on the 21st of Nov. In 1900 they lived in Ashtabula, Ashtabula Co., Ohio, where other Richmond family members lived, and Dora Orlena was still at home at that time. It is very likely that this picture of Dora Orlena was sent to her aunt and uncle, Henrietta (Richmond) and Elno Ladd, in April or May of 1899. We are delighted that Henrietta's daughter-in-law Mamie, wife of Elno Boyd Ladd, kept this picture and passed it on to her daughter Ruby.
