March 2 — Post a photo of one of your female ancestors. Who is in the photo? When was it taken? Why did you select this photo?
Pictured above is Caroline Louisa Norton, my great Grandmother. Caroline was born in 1877 in Quebec City the daughter of Richard Lee Norton & Hannah Pozer Jeffery.
Caroline lived in Quebec City where she married Peter John Jordan in 1900 and they moved to Montreal in 1909. Her husband was a salesman later opening a tobacco shop in Montreal on Papineau Ave.
This photo of Caroline was taken about 1895 in Quebec City when Caroline would have been 18 years old.
I selected this photo because I love the clothing, her hair style and it is one of the few photos that I have of her as a young lady.
