Artist's Description

Lucretia Caroline Hayes (1880 ~ 1967) on the eve of her wedding to Norman Burt Sherry (1871 ~ 1930). Lu was the daughter of my great granduncle Dr. Francis Mason Hayes (Uncle Frank) & his wife Ellen Russ Hayes (Aunt Nellie). Lu & my maternal grandmother, Mabel Hobbie, were first cousins (thus making Lu my first cousin twice removed), & they were best friends as young women. Both summered along the Niagara River in Lewiston, NY, Lu at her parents’ ‘cottage’, Ellengowan, & Mabel three doors over at Cedar Bank.

Cousin Lucretia went on to college, graduating from Smith in Northampton, Massachusetts, in 1902.

This is a crop from a three-quarter-figure studio portrait. This version shows a bit more of the intricate design of her dress.
