Photo: Mary Thomas and the cats, 1925. NOTE -- There were two women named Mary Thomas in the colony, both married to men often referred to as "Daddy" Thomas, so I am not certain which one is in this picture. Because I love it, I have placed the picture on both pages and will continue to dig, trying to find more information on them both.
