Unknown Woman

It is not known who this woman is or the man in the photo on the table. It is believed that this photo originally belonged to Sadie (Sarah) Kennedy Kennard MacKay. She does not appear to be a Kennedy sister.  She remains a mystery. There is nothing on the front or the back of the photo. The cardboard is 7" x 9".

Possible Church Women

This photo is a group of unknown women except for Sadie (Sarah) Kennedy Kennard MacKay. She is on the right end in the second row. The photo was probably either taken in Miles City, Montana or in Brookings, South Dakota. The building may be a church because there are stain glass windows. Sadie was a Presbyterian. Leave a comment if you can identify anyone or the location of the photo. The photo may have been taken circa 1930.
