Wordless Wednesday: Elizabeth Robinson Clarkson with her Grandsons

This delightful photograph of Elizabeth Jane “Lizzie” Robinson Clarkson with her grandsons was probably taken about 1920-1922.  The grandsons are Samuel Edwin “Ed” Clarkson jr (born 1908) and William Henry  “Billy” Vick jr  (born 1911).  Elizabeth Jane Robinson married Richard Albert Clarkson in 1868.  He died in 1913, and she lived on as a widow for seventeen years, dying in 1930.   The location of this photo may be Lizzie’s home in Fort Smith Arkansas, or the grandsons’ hometown of Oklahoma City Oklahoma.  Elizabeth Jane Robinson Clarkson is my great, great grandmother.


  1. what a lovely photo!! She looks like a very kind lady.

  2. Thanks Diane. I have recently been hard at work learning more about my great, great-grandmother, Elizabeth Jane Robinson. I hope to write more about her in the future.

  3. What a great photo. I didn't realize it was the style back then to tuck your tie into your shirt as the two boys have. And just look at the expression of the boys face on the right.
