This lovely lady is “Agnes Shramm McGinty” as written on the back of this photo. Although I believe her maiden name was spelled Schramm. The other inscription is “JB’s mother.” The photo was taken by a photographer in Houston, Texas. And, as it turns out, that’s where Agnes was born, lived, and died.
Much can be learned from her FindAGrave memorial; family members and another stunning picture are there. From the quick information I researched, I know she was born in Houston in June of 1882 to Victoria and John Schramm. She died on May 15, 1962 in Houston and is buried in Forest Park Cemetery – but who isn’t!? Her son, J B McGinty was the informant to her death, she was already widowed.
I couldn’t find her in 1930, but one census listed her father as being from Denmark and her mother from Indiana. Her husband and son were in the carpentry business for at least a time. Must have been good business by the looks of this hat! It’s possible this picture was pre-marriage, she looks quite young.
Whenever it was taken, I hope it is a welcome addition to the family memories of Agnes!
