Another round of pruning family photos, Part 3

Still plugging away...

1. Adella Fredd??? The cursive writing on the back appears to be that of my great-grandmother, Greta Miriam Chandler Adams (1894-1988). The full text is: "Adella Fredd, Papa's older sister." But Greta's Papa was Lilburn Chandler (1858-1948), and I don't believe he had a sister, or even a half-sister, by that name. So I'm left confused. It's possible, of course, that the caption is incorrect, in which case we're left at its mercy. This cabinet card was taken at A.P. Beecher of Wilmington, Delaware. (It's also possible I'm misdeciphering "Adella Fredd.")

2. Mystery. No caption whatsoever on this miniature cabinet card (2½ inches wide) from M. & W. Garrett of Wilmington, Delaware.

3. Another mystery. I have no idea who, where, or when this is. It's just a thin snapshot. Cool dress.

4. Katie, 1935. This is Katie holding a lot of flowers in 1935. There's a short last name written after Katie, but it's illegible. My best guesses would be Cure, Luce, or something along those lines.

5. Gertrude Horsey Winder and Edward John Winder. Gertrude (1881-1963) was mentioned in a previous post. She was the aunt of my great-grandfather, Howard Horsey “Ted” Adams (1892-1985). Edward (1858–1952) was her second husband. The caption states: "This is Uncle Ed and Aunt Gertrude snapped in 1940 on beach at Fort Lauderdale, Fla."
