This lovely little girl was rescued from the same antique story as Mary Crimm who I blogged about earlier; Mary Elizabeth Crimm Amos. The fact that they were found together gave me reason to research a familial connection between them. My earlier research about Mary had already revealed Mary’s son, Alonzo Crimm (or Crim).

It only took a few minutes of further research to locate his children, where I found one named “Erma C. Crimm”. Though names on photographs aren’t 100% proof of being a specific person, and even less so when there is no location information on it, I’m fairly certain that this is Mary’s grand-daughter.

Looking into her records, I didn’t see anything that suggested that she ever married or had children. There are a few mentions of a ‘Erma Crimm’ who was a teacher at Victory High School, located in Harrison County, West Virginia. This is the same county as is recorded on Mary Crimm’s portrait as the photographers studio location.
