My great-grandparents

I came across this photo while clearing my parents' home.  The subjects of the photo are my great-grandparents.  Lois L Dawson married Albert Leroy Dillon in June 1901.  They lived in Chicago while he attended medical school.  In November 1903, ALD purchased land in Hume, Edgar Co., Illinois where there son was born in September 1904.  Lois and Albert divorced in March 1908.

This is the first photo that I have seen of them as a married couple.  It is very much treasured!
