Today’s post highlights another photograph from the Carr/Brewster/Botsford Family Collection recently acquired by the Yellow Springs Historical Society. The woman in the photograph is Ella Little. Ironically, while looking through old issues of the Yellow Springs Review today, I stumbled upon an announcement referring to Ella.
As published in the Yellow Springs Review on February 19, 1886.
A very pleasant progressive euchre party was given Thursday evening of last week by Miss Ella Little at the home of her parents on Elm Street. Some twenty friends of the young hostess were present and all report an enjoyable time. The “first” prizes were elegant, and the “booby” prizes were not only ludicrous, but unique. Friends present from out of town were Miss Libbie Hayworth, of Liberty, Ind., Miss Alice Galloway of Xenia, and Will Galloway, of near Xenia.
Ella was the daughter of Jeremiah and Mary Little. Jeremiah was a local grain dealer and ran the grain elevator here in Yellow Springs. The Little family owned and occupied the house at 212 Elm Street.
