Lou Ella Markham Howard as the Help
Here is a photo of my grandaunt Louella Markham Howard with her young charge. Aunt Louella, like many women in my family, worked as a domestic. Aunt Luella was born 16 Aug 1885 in Caseyville, MS, to Monroe and Mary Byrd Markham. She married Elijah Howard, no children were born to the union.
