I have two photos of this lady. One is of four people; Mary Anders, Louise Schmitendorf, and Marjorie Smith who is holding Donald C Smith. (Taken circa 1933) On the back of the photo in Marjories hand is written "four generations". Mary was a tiny lady. In the photo she is shorter than Marjorie who was 5 feet tall. The second photo is of her and her daughter-in-law at the Ostrich exibit, Venice Beach Los Angeles CA.
