Mother and Daughter

Noma Davis DuBoise had this photo in her collection of family pictures that she recently shared with me and my mother. I've titled it Mother and Daughter because it is a picture of Queenie Victoria Clayton Davis and her daughter and my grandmother, Rebecca Davis Pennington. Looks like they are shucking some ears of corn. Queenie must have been visiting the Pennington farm that day since she and her daughter are standing by the Pennington smokehouse. I'm struck by how much my grandmother looks like her Aunt Lizzie Lee Davis Spencer in this picture. Oh, and look at Queenie's feet - she's barefoot!
