Photo of Ida Rae Tripp Thomas and daughter Martha Thomas

Ida Rae Tripp Thomas with daughter Martha Thomas and two unidentified individuals

From Francis Partch, this is a photo of Martha Thomas (left) with her mother Ida Rae Tripp Thomas standing beside her. Ida Rae Tripp was the daughter of James Preston Tripp and Jennie M. McWhirt. Her step-mother was Mary Elizabeth Sparks McCormick Tripp, a sister of Belle Sparks McKenney and Martha Catherine Sparks who married Philemon Thomas. Ida Rae married Alfred Thomas, a son of Martha and Philemon.

Francis is unable to identify the woman and the man standing to the right of the photo. The Alfred Thomas family moved by 1930 to Trinidad, Colorado, but she doesn’t know whether this picture was taken there or in Oklahoma.

I love the dog. It’s fun when the family pets appears in photos. I wonder what its name was.
