Nellie Appleby, born in Chautaugua County, Kansas, had no idea when this picture was taken that she would eventually marry a man named T. C. Van Eaton. She would be his third wife and they would have three kids, John, Robert and Nell.

I’m curious what this little girl would have said if you had told her she would live in a beautiful house on top of a hill . . . in a tiny logging town of Eatonville, Wash.
