15. Photo Gallery: Lena O'Neill






This is my grandmother Lena Mertie O'Neill, daughter of Thomas O'Neill and Mary Catherine Wilson. This photo is probably from around 1900. She was living with her parents in the farmhouse on Glady Run outside Summerfield.






Lena was a talented seamstress. She made this dress for herself. When she married my grandfather, she was working in a tailor shop in Cambridge, Ohio.
