An image of Mrs. Lewis Dingman Brodhead (a.k.a. Mildred Elizabeth Hancock)

As long-time readers of this blog know, Mildred Elizabeth Hancock (1892 – Aft 1940) eloped with my Great Uncle Lewis Dingman Brodhead (1884-1934) on June 23, 1911, at the Church of the Transfiguration in Manhattan.

(My previous blog posts about them include: Another Brodhead elopes, this time in 1911 at NYC’s Little Church Around the Corner; More on Lewis D. Brodhead; and Survived by ‘Mrs. R. J. Cole of Philadelphia’)

Well, some good news! The Baltimore Sun has kindly given me permission to publish the photo of Mildred that appeared on p. 14 of the July 12, 1911, issue of that paper.

Mildred’s hat is pretty fabulous; it’s a shame we can’t see her or her hat in full living color, but under the circumstances, B&W will definitely do!

    • Hello, Bruce; I’m glad you have enjoyed the blog! I don’t know about any of these things; I assume you are thinking Sir John Franklin may be related due to the fact that Benjamin Franklin is in my maternal line? If you want to send me any info you have on the things you have mentioned, you can send to: chipsoff at gmail dot com. I am pretty busy with my ‘day job’ (I am far from retirement!), I will investigate as time allows! 🙂
