Three generations of women are pictured above. My grandmother, Mary Evelyn Bowen, is the infant in the center. On the left is her mother, Eleanor Van Dusen and on her right is her maternal grandmother Mary Ellen Barrett. The location of this picture would probably be in Gallup New Mexico. My grandmother, Mary was born 12 April 1929, dating this photograph 1929. My great grandmother, Eleanor, is looking quite stylish for the day in her dress and hat.
