Doris Miles and her mother, Ida Costner Edwards
This is Bonnie McMullan's picture.
It's her mother, Doris Miles, my mother's first cousin, and her mother, my mother's Aunt Ida.
Doris's husband was a Bell, so Bonnie and I are kin as Costners and Bells. Ida was kin to her stepchildren because she was a Stewart cousin of their late mother.
Doris lived to be a hundred, early this year--I think the longest living of any of her brothers and sisters and dozens of cousins.
