Original circa 1893 cabinet card (6.5" x 4.25") of Gertrude Dyches (1880-1960), whose family owned a 1000 acre ranch on Willis Creek in Granger, Texas. Interesting family history - when Gertrude was 9 her father was murdered by horse thieves, and two of her brothers were Texas Rangers. Gertude lived until 1960 and never married.

A little bit found online:

Gertrude Dyches , daughter of William Dyches and Tabitha Allan "Tabbie" May Dyches , was born September 24, 1880. She attended Add-Ran Col­lege at Thorp Spring, Texas about 1900. She joined her mother and siblings in execut­ing a deed February 5, 1906 to 54.5 acres, "part of the Josiah Dyches Survey," accord­ing to Williamson County Deed Book 118, page 184. She died unmarried in San Angelo in 1960 and was buried beside her mother. She was an outstanding horsewoman and an ex­pert markswoman with a pistol.

Photographed by Heiman & Schlueter of Granger. Cabinet card is in pretty good antique with light surface wear and aging.
