A note to one and all.... I have hundreds of photos from southern Illinois Tweedys taken mid 1800s into the 1920s. I will post more as I can. Anyone that has more information about any of the families that appear in the photos, do please contact me so that we might bring all up to date and possibly help other Tweedys out there seeking their family lore and history. I have several candid photos, people sight seeing, with farm animals, walking, enjoying the snow, etc., will get to those when I can.

(note this is likely Gertrude McCann, not Grace as I originally thought, refer to comments below for clarification).
I believe this is Grace McCann and her daughter Hope. Grace was a cousin to the Tweedys, or her maiden name may have been Tweedy. I must research this more and get back with everyone.
