    Notes 
    • From Kaye Wachter's book:
      Very little is known about Rhoda. Her pictures, even from an early age, show her wearing glasses. Her picture postcards to the Frank Hows, many of which came from *Swansea, in Wales, all showed her enjoying life and perhaps even being the "instigator". [One postcard in particular leads this editor to believe that Rhoda probably taught at a girl's school in Swansea.] She died of influenza in 1918.
