Barbara Inez Hendrix and sister Agnes Elizabeth Hendrix. I will find another picture of Inez. She deserves better.
Barbara Inez (Hendrix) Angland, my paternal grandmother, is the sad young girl sitting on the chair. She was born a twin on August 6th, 1894 in Wendell MN. Her twin sister died as a baby and Inez was a sickly child. Inez’s parents left farming to own and operate a hotel in Chokio, MN when she was 13 years old. She cleaned rooms at the hotel. At the age of 26 she became pregnant with my father by Harold Angland who had been boarding at the hotel. They were married when she was 3 months pregnant. The couple moved to Minneapolis but she returned home with the baby. Harold was villainized by the Hendrix family. Inez developed rheumatoid arthritis as a young woman. She was disabled when I knew her. She died in her 60s. Inez had 3 sisters and a brother. My father, Dennis Warren (Jack) Angland was her only child. Her older sister Agnes Elizabeth (Hendrix) Davidson was as sparky as she appears in the photo. Agnes was like a grandparent to us.
