I was doing some genealogical work to see if there was a connection between Reuben and Anna recently, but that proved futile. It was a very small island and everyone was related to everyone else often with disastrous results. However, something interesting turned up, a "lost" painting of Anna C. Ames. Here's a photo of Anna from around the turn of the century when she opened the Ames Gymnasium (1902) and became the grandmother of our town's successful music and athletic programs
I love the warmer expression of the painting.
