Thankfully someone noted the names of these two lovely ladies on this photo. We know that Clara Shrader married Isaac Henry Roberts, the son of William Roberts and Sarah (Christie) Roberts. The mystery is Eva Bennett.

Clara’s mother was Mary Ann (Bennett) Shrader. Could Eva be Mary Ann’s sister, and therefore Clara’s aunt? They look to be of similar ages, though it was possible within large families for young aunts and uncles to happen.

Another possibility is that since Eva’s last name is Bennett, she could be the daughter of a brother of Mary Ann (Bennett) Schrader. That would make Clara and Eva first cousins.

Finding siblings of Mary Ann Bennett has been unsuccessful thus far. Her parents were Harry Bennett and Elizabeth Basone per Mary Ann’s death certificate.

Just to add to the mystery, here is another photo that was in with the family collection. It is labeled, thankfully.
