#GenealogyPhotoADay ~ starts with A AUFLICK

Written for Genealogy Photo A Day ~ a list of photo prompts provided by Genealogy Girl Talks.

Name: Nellie [possibly Margaret or Mary Ellen] Auflick
Born: 29-Apr-1864, Minersville, Meigs County, Ohio
Married: William Eickelberg, 01-Jan-1884, Charleston, West Virginia
Died: 27-Sep-1940, Meigs County, Ohio [Find-A-Grave memorial]

Relationship: Great-great-grandmother
I am descended through:
- her daughter, Nelle Eickelberg (1885 - 1970)
- her son, Jack H Quick (1911 - 1999)
- his daughter, my mother, Jacqulin Ann Quick (living)

Although Nellie was born and died in Ohio, the picture here was taken in Denver in 1887 and Colorado is where she lived most of her adult life.  I'd always assumed it was where she'd died until I did some actual research. I even blogged about it way back when I made the discovery.

I have many pictures of Nellie so it was hard to choose one to share.

The last picture is Nellie at her 70th birthday.

Her parents, Thomas Auflick and Margaret Ann Hannington also eventually moved out to Colorado and are buried in Lafayette, Colorado. If I'd had a picture of them I'd have chosen that for this prompt. I've always felt there SHOULD be a picture of this couple. It's certainly on my most wanted list.
