Shafer, most likely the girl pictured with the kitten. By 1914, according to The County Capital of Sept. 24, the Shafers lived in Bentonville, Ark. The 1920 Federal Census of Benton County, Ark., shows them with three more children. Leonard P. and Lucille Mildred, Mrs. Bessie Shafer and Vera M. Shafer ordered the photograph.
