This photograph, on cardboard, was taken at a fair in Robeson County in 1889 when Ella McKay [baby] was about six months old. This was about the time the J.F. "Frank" McKay family moved from Blackfork region of Raft Swamp, commonly called the "The Fork," just below Shannon to their new home at Philadelphus.
