Babies are cute regardless of when they were born. Here is little Benedicta Trunk as an infant, maybe as young as 3-4 months as she’s sort of laying on the chair and not holding up her head very much. You can see the inscription below the photo that someone wrote “Ben Trunk.” I’m guessing this was her nickname. The photo was taken in Youngstown, Ohio by Blackburn.
Little Ben was born in 1889 in Pennsylvania. There’s lots of work to do on this story, so check back again as I have several other photos of Ben and her family.
