Photo of Vera Mothershed from Colorado strays far from home

Vera Mothershed, photo purchased at Antique Peddlers Mall, Greenbrier Arkansas, 12-7-15

This lovely photo was purchased at Arkansas Peddler’s Antique Mall in Greenbrier, Arkansas on December 7, 2015.  In very faint lettering on the back is written Vera Mothershed. The photographer stamp on the photo corner says Loveland, Colorado.  A quick look up at yielded several entries for Vera Mothershed in Loveland, Colorado.  She is listed as a daughter in the 1930 and 1940 censuses in the household of Charles and Lillian Mothershed.  Her entry shows she was born in 1907 and died in 2000 in Loveland, Colorado.  It appears that she did not marry or have children. Though born in Iowa, it appears she spent most of her life in Loveland, Colorado, yet her picture strayed far away to Arkansas. I’ve sent an email to a relative found on and am hopeful that Vera’s photo can be returned to family soon.
