(Editor’s note: The back of this photograph says “Jessie Garris Young.” Jessie — also known as “J’Mae” by her siblings and cousins, and “Aunt Ditta” by Bobby, Boyd and Billy — was the third-oldest sibling in Bee / Momma / Grandma’s family, and born in 1914, about four years before Bee / Momma / Grandma. How old do you think she is here, and where do you think she might be? Take a guess, and then maybe we can date and place this photograph.)
