Time it was, and what a time it was, it was
A time of innocence, a time of confidences
Long ago, it must be, I have a photograph
Preserve your memories, they're all that's left you

Lela May Whitetree 1921-2006

Lela May Whitetree was 16 months old when this picture was taken in Pawluska, Oklahoma. She was born on March 14, 1921. Her grandmother, Laura Isabelle Rhea was sister to my grandfather. Laura married Hamilton Greene and they moved to Oklahoma. In the letters my great grandmother wrote, she talked about Laura who moved far away. Laura's daughter Victoria married Harry Whitetree and they were the parents of little Lela.

Lela married Lionel Golden when she was about 20 and they had several children. She died on October 30, 2006 and she and Lionel are buried at the Wyandotte Indian Cemetery in Ottawa, Oklahoma.
