A Lovely New Caroline Picture

Many thanks to Caroline Ferriday’s cousin Alexander “Sandy” Neave who recently shared this wonderful photo with me. I love finding old pictures of Caroline I’ve never seen, but this one is really special since it captures a moment with her cousins frozen in time. From left to right: Alexander C. Neave (Sandy’s father), Esther Baker Young, Charles F. Neave (going off to war), Betsy Baker and a teenaged Caroline. Caroline’s aunt on her father’s side, Elizabeth Ferriday Neave (whose beautiful oval portrait hangs in Caroline’s room at The Bellamy-Ferriday House) was Alexander and Charles’ mother. The Baker girls are the daughters of Helen Ferriday Baker, Elizabeth’s sister.
