Fearless Females - Family Resemblance

In honor of National Women's History Month, I will be following the blogging prompts from The Accidental Genealogist blog. The prompts are interesting and I am truly enjoying this.  Here is day 24.  

March 24 — Do you share any physical resemblance or personality trait with one of your female ancestors? Who? What is it?

I really don't know if I have any physical resemblance to any of my ancestors.  I have been told that I look a little like my Grandmother Anna Boughner Plummer.  Since Anna died long before I was born, I never got to see her.  There are just a couple of pictures that I have been able to find.

I am going to post a picture of Anna and a picture of me and ask you to tell me what you think.  Anna's daughter's that I have seen pictures of do not remind me of her at all.  I do believe my dad looks like her.  Dad was 45 when I was born, so many of his siblings had died before I was born or when I was young.  I really only knew one of his sisters and one of his brothers.  His brother looked very much like him, but his sister really didn't look like him at all. 

The two pictures are of my Grandma Anna, and the last picture is of me.  What do you think.  I know I have her thick dark hair.

  1. It's so hard to tell, especially w/the second one because she's not looking up.

    It's neat that you have the pictures though. :)
