Since I briefly mentioned her… This is the family of my 2nd Great Aunt, Pearl Elizabeth Packer Jones, my Great-Grandmother Cora’s older sister. Pictured are Pearl, her first husband Raymond E. Jones and their daughters Alexia, Doris (on Raymond’s lap) and Edith. The photo is likely taken in Grand Rapids, MI around 1915 (based on Doris’s age). Raymond died in 1937 and for a time Cora and her children moved in with them. Eventually, Pearl married Archie McComb and the couple removed to Quebec. Pearl returned to Grand Rapids late in life and died there in 1980.
