"This is a photo of cousins Marie Carter and Sylvia Carter.
They were raised more or less as sisters, by Marie's mother and my grandmother, Rosena (Burton) Carter.

Marie Carter was born in 1910 and died in 1940 as a result of burns recieved when her gown caught fire from an open fireplace.
This happened at the Carter home place on Carter Branch.

Marie was greatly loved by her family. I was told that this picture was taken in Catlettsburg, Boyd County, Kentucky.
I love this photo. It was found among photos my father inherited from his mother, Rosena (Burton) Carter.

Marie Carter and Sylvia Lucille (Carter) Luman

Sylvia's mother, Ethel (Burton) Carter, of flu in 1920.
My grandmother, Rosena Burton Carter and Ethel were sisters who married brothers, Lafe and Frank Carter.

My youngest daughter, Amanda Marie Carter Williams, of Berea, Kentucky is named for Marie and, like Marie, is quite a special person.
