046 Willis Champion Pierce and Willis Conway Pierce August 7, 1896

This photo is placed here because it has been the one piece of data that has allowed the identification of photos of the Jacob Ayhart Pierce family.  On it's back is written: "Aunt Cora" Aug 7 1896 Compliments of Willis Conway.  This is a carte de visite size photo.  The Willis Conway referred to is Willis Conway Pierce, b. 2 Dec 1895, consistent with a baby who can sit up the next August.  The adult is therefore Willis Champion Pierce, Willis Conway's father.  Willis Champion appears in many other photos in the collection, usually with his family (although see below).
