Grandma and Pa Mathews
This is a photograph discovered a while back by a cousin in a box left at his father's house by our grandmother. It is labeled as "Grandma and Pa Mathews", indicating that it is probably Thomas Franklin (T.F.) Mathews and his wife Susan Katherine (Kate) Peterman. T.F. lived from 1841 to 1922, while Kate was 1849 to 1933. Considering her dress and the fact that they are older but not old, I would make a preliminary guess that this was taken around 1900, but that's speculation at this point.
