1903 Photograph of Etta M. Holloway at age 13; by Kozorek studio of New Bedford, Massachusetts

Photograph dated December 12, 1903 of a girl identified on the reverse as Etta M. Holloway at age 13 years, 6 months.  The photograph was taken by the Kozorek studio of 919 Acushnet Avenue, New Bedford, Massachusetts.

From brief online research, hopefully correct - corrections and additions requested:

Etta Marion Holloway was born about June 1890 at New Bedford, Massachusetts, the daughter of Arod Beals Holloway and Marion Loubella (Cole) Holloway.  On April 23, 1913 at New Bedford, Massachusetts, Etta married Elmer Ricketson, son of Orion Ricketson and Annie Vella (Glover) Ricketson.  Elmer was born February 4, 1889 at New Bedford, Massachusetts.

Elmer was working as a bookkeeper and Etta as a clerk at the time of their marriage.  Elmer went on to become an accountant with the Internal Revenue Service.  They had a daughter Marion Wheeler Ricketson, born in 1917.

Elmer died in 1972; I'm not sure when Etta died.
