Ana Sophie Olsen

It is conjecture that this picture was taken before Ana Sophie left Denmark with her parents and siblings for America. She might have been around 16 years of age. We always loved the love story about her and Great-grandpa John Brooks Wasden. Their marriage only lasted a little over a year, when she died after delivering twin sons, James Brooks and Peter Wasden. Peter died soon after birth, and our grandfather, James Brooks Wasden, was nurtured and lived - to have a wonderful progeny that numbers in the hundreds.
