Photograph of Mel "Mellie" Simms and Mrytle Simms.

Date: Unknown

Location: St. Francois County, Missouri.

Photograph Number: 0310

Additional Information: This picture of the two lovely young ladies are Mel "Mellie" Simms and Mrytle Simms. They're the daughters of George Milbern Simms and Clara Jane Mitchell. Mrytle Simms was born about 1889, and Mel "Mellie" Simms about 1890. Myrtle Simms died at age 18 after contacting TB from a friend she was nursing. Mel married a man with the last name of Burtchinger.

It's almost unreadable, but the correct order in identifying them came from the names at the bottom of the photograph.
