Finally got all my photos of the Sackett & Mason family posted to Flickr>>> with an introduction to the collection and the family here>>>
This is a labor of love, since the last Fredonia family member apparently died out in the 1970s. I don’t have anything in common with them. While my family was laboring their way through poverty and prejudice, the Sackett and Mason families were privileged and polished — or so the photos convey. Still, I keep coming back to them, wondering what their story is. Or maybe the point is that there is no Story — just lives lived.
