The first in a series of photos which I received the other day.
This one is of my Great Great Aunt, Isabella Gow.
She was born in 1859, at Cairn Farm, Muthill, Perthshire, Scotland.
As you can see above, the photo was taken when she was 10 years old in 1869. In 1878, she married John Reddoch. They had 9 children, and a couple of miscarriages & stillbirths. Isabella died in 1897 in Kinross at the very young age of 38, as a result of complications during childbirth, in which the child was stillborn.
What a gorgeous young girl she was!
