These were my great grandmothers (on my mothers side) aunt and uncle.

Cora L Guernsey and Carrie Adelia Guernsey were first cousins.

Carrie married Willard H. Rice in 27 Apr 1886 and moved to Burke, VA.

My grandmother, Charlotte Rice, spent summers in Belmont, MA with Cora Guernsey and Fred Frost.
