Mystery Photo of Dorothy Kendall

Here is a photo that was given to me with the name written across the front as Dorothy Kendall. It does resemble a wedding photo and is quite formal. If this is a wedding picture, I do not know if this name would be her maiden name or her new married name. It does look like she is holding a bible and possibly a rosary in this picture. If anyone knows of this person and any information on her, please contact me. I am sure that my grandmother, Alice Mae Ashley Short, was given this photo for a reason. Thanks!

This is a beautiful photograph and Dorothy looks lovely in her dress and veil. She looks too young to be a bride so I wonder if this might be a church confirmation photograph, especially because of her age and the Bible and rosary that she's holding. I hope someone comes along who can tell you more about her and her possible relationship to your family.

You have a beautiful blog!

It looks like a photo taken at Confirmation (when youths become adult members of the Catholic church) - so it would be her family (maiden) name.

I appreciate all of your helpful comments! I thought she looked rather young to be getting married. I do not know of any Catholic family connections in this locality. I will have to ask around about any Catholic families with the last name Kendall on my visit to Carlisle in May. Very interesting!!! Why would my grandmother have this photo - the mystery continues!

Welcome to the Geneabloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!
