52 Ancestors #2 Sarah Corsett Wiedrich - Bathing Beauty

My great grandmother, Sarah Corsett Wiedrich was a amazing person. She was born in 1868 and for most of her life didn't travel more than 30 miles from home. When my grandparents moved to Gloucester City, NJ during the 1940s she visited and when they moved to Tampa, Florida in 1945 she wanted to visit again. This is a picture of her in September of 1946 in Tampa sunbathing. She's in a two piece bathing suit. Pretty amazing for a 78 year old woman born just after the Civil War during the Victorian Era. She lived a rich life and died at the age of 100.

  1. Good for her! That attitude probably helped her live to 100.
