Birth Announcement, Clara Ellen Wright, 1916

"Found, A Girl," announcement, Alexandria Times-Tribune, 28 March 1916; online images, ( : accessed 29 March 2015).
Found, a Girl -

Dr. J.E. Hall reported to the Times-Tribune that there was rejoicing in the home of Virgil Wright, two miles south of the city, this morning over the arrival of a baby daughter.

Though it doesn't mention her by name, this is the birth announcement of my maternal grandaunt, Clara Ellen Wright (1916-2005), daughter of Virgil Lee and Edna Muriel (Pierce) Wright.  Clara Ellen was the oldest of their three children.
