The picture was taken before 1920. It shows Dinah Davies with her children Thomas W and Mary Ann Davies Camp. Dinah was born in Wales in 1825 and died in 1920. She is buried in First Springwater with her husband William W. Davies who was born September 27, 1819 and died April 2, 1893. Thomas was a teacher and principal in Manitowoc. He was born about 1866 and married Katherine and had two daughters. Mary Ann Davies married Willard Camp in 1889 in Dover, Minnesota. Mary Ann was born April 19, 1856 in Berlin and died June 13, 1920. She divorced Willard Camp. Around the turn of the century (1900) she was a dressmaker in Wild Rose and went to North Dakota for a season. She had a son Welcome and two other children who died young. You will notice that Dinah is in a wheelchair. Mary Ann Camp lived on Maple Avenue at one time and at 538 Wisconsin Avenue another time.
