Four Generations

Written on the back, "Great Gran Ina & Grandpa Forues, Grandma Sinclair, Aunt Ruth & Adelaide Sinclair."  And yes, I did look up the Forues name, and it's the real deal.

Now, my best guess is that this photo was taken at the end of the nineteenth century or the very early years of the twentieth.  That means, the Great Gran Ina, Grandpa Forues, and Grandma Sinclair were alive during the Civil War, and Ina, as a young child, probably listened to stories about the American Revolution from people who were there.  And, young Adelaide probably lived through World War 1, World War 2,  and maybe even Vietnam.
