This is a photograph showing Lida Ann Beaty Pearce with her two daughters Margaret and Josephine Ruth. In 1882, Lida's family came to Kansas from Indiana and settled in Linn County and then Stafford County. In 1885, the family eventually settled in Hodgeman County, where they lived for seven years until drought forced them to leave. After moving from Hodgeman County, she lived in Osawatomie where she met and married Herbert Pearce, a newspaperman, in 1904. When he died in 1907, Lida moved to Irvington, Indiana. She met and married Ed Jackson in 1920. He was an attorney and, beginning in 1924, he served for four years as Indiana governor. This photograph was probably taken in Indiana.

Date: Between 1909 and 1910
