Rufus and Elizabeth Henderson

The above photo was submitted by Don Olson. "Peg Snow mentioned Betsy when she was helping Virginia identify people in that Ainslie group photo. This is a photo of her with her brother, Rufus Henderson. I guess she went by Betsy, but her name was Elizabeth Henderson. With a common name such as Elizabeth, nic names were welcome. Betsy was 4 yrs older than Rufus. Betsy died 21 Oct 1915 and is buried in the Snow cemetery. This photo, then, was taken probably close to that date. Rufus always seemed to have a knife in one hand and an apple in the other. I wonder what was in the bottle and pail on the table in the background. Maybe they made there own cider, or was it something stronger?"
